The most illustrative poll would probably be one that measures the intentions of those age 40-75, since they are the most likely to turnout for a municipal election. Whoever is winning there, will probably win the election.

You win based entirely on conjecture!

The reality is that one firm has dominated the "polling" discussion -- Remington. The Star released a primary poll, and no one else has done anything public.

So if you want to put all of your eggs in the Jeff Roe polling basket because it supports your "OMG SHE'S SO NEGATIVE AND LOSING" narrative, have at it. It will go well with a cold side of Sherry DeJanes donations.

KCTV5 released a poll in a news cast

54 to 49 for Lucas. Which adds up to 103%. They didn't give the source or the margin of error. This could be the most accurate poll so far but it's impossible to tell.

Again, show us proof she's losing. The polls so far don't show this.

Huh? Shes down 3 points in the One poll, down 5 in the other. There has yet to be any poll released by her campaign showing her in the lead.

Do you not know what margins of error are?

The first poll could be wrong by nearly 5%. What they're saying is she could be ahead and the poll wouldn't be able to show it. To be fair, it could be wrong 5% the other way. Their methodology isn't good enough to be able to identify the actual results to better than a 10% spread. (5% more for Lucas all the way to 5% more for Justus). When it shows them 3% apart it basically shows you nothing. And don't forget that 1 in 5 voters had not picked someone yet. So they're 2-8% apart when you count 80% of votes.

The other one we just told you adds up to 103% of people have picked a candidate. I can't even find the poll they mention.

There have been polls released showing Lucas in the lead. Nada for Justus.

So happy that after next week Justus and James will be done here.

And most people don't give a shit about your "facts". In fact, most of your shit isn't facts. Here's a quick sample from the last few pages...

"bought and paid for politicians like Justus are more focused on giving handouts to millionaires."
"Here comes the hive! our underperforming city is being attacked. Quick lets defend our status quo politician!"
"Quinton made Jolie look like the chamber of commerce shill that she is last night."
"Hearing the Justus campaign isn't as confident as they were just a month ago..."
"The butthurt is strong with this one."

Just bursting with facts...

You conveniently left out the polling data which you denied, denied, denied, laughbly tried to argue that a left wing candidate paid a Republican pollster. Then we see another poll showing Lucas in the lead. No factual indications that Justus has a lead.

I get it most on here have made a nice living off the corporate handouts. A handful have ran for office and couldn't even make it out of the primaries lol. Your shitty politics has been rebuked by the voters. It only took us 8 years but here we are.

It's Remington, again. Paid for by the Firefighters or some Lucas-affiliated PAC. Worst kept secret.

For some board position on the street car. Entirely different. Your little cults focus on here is too narrow minded it's as if you don't know anything outside of downtown exists and you can shrug off basic services. It's that kind of attitude that's going to cost your candidate the election next week.

Oh, we're a cult now. Nice!

#StatusElevated

Maybe you've not seen my thousands of 311 reports on Twitter, or my vocal support for the GO Bond (totes basic infra!).

We mock potholes because it's a campaign trope that Q never said shit about until a mailer three weeks ago, not because we ignore them.
