A new poll shows Toni Preckwinkle leading Rahm Emanuel in a hypothetical 2015 mayor’s race.
40 percent of respondents said they would vote for Preckwinkle if the election was held today, while 32 percent said the same about Emanuel. A wide swath of voters – 28 percent – were undecided.
53 percent of those polled said Chicago is heading in the wrong direction.
As Crain’s Chicago points out, the survey was conducted by robocalls, a method 538’s Nate Silver says has a wider margin of error than other methods.
Still, it’s an interesting snapshot ahead of next year’s election.
