Poll: Emanuel Leads Chicago Mayoral Race

More

The numbers are a bit old and the results a bit unsurprising, but to satisfy anyone's hunger for Chicago mayoral speculative fodder, here's a new poll that shows Rahm Emanuel leading the race.

Market Shares Corporation polled 721 Chicago residents December 10 - 13, and just released their results today:

                Total%    White     Black   Hispanic
Rahm Emanuel        32        46        19         27
Gery Chico           9         9        15         12
Danny Davis          9         1         1          2
Gregory Meeks        7         4         4         >1
Carol Moseley-Braun  6         2        10          4
Miguel del Valle     3         2         -         14
Roland Burris        2         1         3          -
Others (Net)         2         1         2          4

The general election will be held February 22, with a run-off on April 5. Since this poll was taken, Burris has dropped out of the race and Emanuel has faced a panel of questioners on his Chicago residency, neither of which figure to have drastic implications in the race.

The poll's margin of error for total vote percent is +/- 3.6 percent; the margin for racial subgroups is +/- 6.6 percent.
