In HD 9, incumbent Michelle Rehwinkel Vasalinda way out front of challenger Bradley Maxwell according to latest poll

in Uncategorized by

Despite running a smart, well-financed, well-organized campaign, Republican Bradley Maxwell badly trails Democratic incumbent Michelle Rehwinkel Vasalinda in House District 9.

According to a new survey conducted by St. Pete Polls, Bradley is at 37.1% in the polls, while Rehwinkel Vasalinda is at 52.2%.  Approximately 11% of voters remain undecided. The poll of likely voters was conducted Oct. 1 through Oct. 3.

As for the veracity of St. Pete Polls data, I wrote this analysis last month about its numbers vs. actual results and determined, “Its results in the most important races outweigh its askew numbers in down-ballot campaigns.”
