J.D. Scholten received the lion’s share of the number one picks for participants in our Fourth District survey, while John Paschen and Leann Jacobsen tussled over slots 2 and 3. Preference leaned towards Paschen, however, as Jacobsen received a number of number 4 slots. At first glance, this could be seen as an unwillingness to place a woman in the running against King. However, after speaking with some voters in the area the primary drivers were a lack of clear policy commitment and a questionable background that does not make her a very desirable candidate to represent the left in the district.
There were far fewer votes cast in this poll that previous polls and this could be attributed to a number of factors, including a lack of interest due to the loss of the instant gratification of being able to see the poll results immediately after voting. However, we also did not experience the heavy repeat voting we had experienced in previous polls. If you find that this or subsequent polls have technical difficulties, please don’t hesitate to contact us regarding the problem and we will do our best to remedy it.
