LAWMAKER HAS TWO-TO-ONE EDGE OVER NEAREST RIVAL …

|| By FITSNEWS || A new poll shows S.C. representative Leon Stavrinakis leading the field in the race for mayor of Charleston.

The fifth-term state lawmaker leads his closest rival – local businessman John Tecklenburg – by more than a 2-to-1 margin according to the survey, which was conducted by a national pollster commissioned by the frontrunner’s campaign.

Stavrinakis is supported by 26 percent of voters – easily outdistancing Tecklenburg’s 12 percent support.  Tied for third in the survey are nonprofit community leader Ginny Deerin and city councilman William Dudley Gregorie (with eight percent apiece), while former city councilman Paul Tinkler is in fourth place with seven percent of the vote, ahead of community leader Maurice Washington (four percent).

A whopping 35 percent of voters remain undecided in the race to replace longtime mayor Joe Riley – who is stepping down after four decades on the job.

Stavrinakis’ survey – conducted between August 17-19, 2015 by Garin-Hart-Yang research group in Washington, D.C. – polled 403 likely voters in the November 3 election.  The survey results have a margin of error of plus or minus five percentage points.

Leon will win. He’s the only qualified person running, which is surprising given the magnitude of the race. Shows how strong he is. How long has Tecklenberg been running?? And he’s only at 12%??? Goodnight, Johnny boy.

Just gonna throw in the fact GHY is widely considered to be the worse national pollster. So much is that they don’t get a lot of business anymore. Why didn’t Leon’s “Republican” consulting group commission the poll themselves?

Leon is a smug bastard that will bring cronyism to a new level.
Charleston will regret it if short stuff is elected mayor.

All the candidates have nearly identical positions. It is a timid, sucky field.

Even though Stavrinakis would probably benefit me personally as mayor, I still won’t vote for him. He’s untrustworthy, even compared to other politicians.

This poll is irrelevant.

39% are for someone else and 35% are “undecided?”Plus there is a runoff provision if no candidate gets more than 50%.

If I was Leon I wouldn’t be declaring victory just yet.

And what are the douche bags qualifications? What large business with 1500 employees has he ever managed? He doesn’t want to make anything better. That is just a stupid century old bullshit line. He wants the salary. He wants the benefits. But he is NOT WORTHY. He is an Obama testicle licker.
