POLL: CTU President Karen Lewis ahead of Emanuel if she chooses to run for mayor
A new poll suggests, Mayor Rahm Emanuel may have a difficult time getting re-elected.
According to the Sun-Times, an automated phone survey of Chicago voters gives Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis a 9 % lead over Emanuel, should she choose to run.
The mayor trails among white and black voters, but leads among Hispanic voters.
The same poll suggests, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle is an even more dramatic 24 points ahead of Emanuel, though she hasn’t declared her candidacy either.
The pollsters note that the results are just a snapshot in time, and that Emanuel could still be re-elected next February.
