HBO Poll: Currie Has Chance To Win

  • Thursday Poll: A fair majority of respondents believe that Commissioner Rick Currie has a slim to good chance of succeeding as a write-in candidate in his re-election bid against Republican primary winner Jai Nelson. 68 of 111 (61%) said Currie has a chance of winning the uphill battle (38 rated chance as "slim," 20 said "fair," and 10 voted "good"). 40 of 111 (36%) said Currie had no chance of winning as a write-in candidate.
  • Dirtiest Local Race: The race between write-in Currie and Republican banner carrier Jai Nelson also was the people's choice to be the nastiest one locally this fall. 46 of 151 respondents (30.46%) expect the commissioners race to be dirtiest. Tied for second (w/31 of 151 votes, 20.53%) were the NIC trustee race b/n Christie Wood & Robert Ketchum and the county clerk's race b/n Dan English & Cliff Hayes). A close 4th was the race b/n Phil Hart & write-in Howard Griffiths with 30 votes (19.9%). Of the five races listed, the NIC trustee one b/n Ron Nilson & Ken Howard is expected to have the least fireworks (13 of 151, 8.6%)
