BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) – The current mayor of Buffalo and the challenger who defeated him in the primary have different opinions from an exclusive poll conducted earlier this week by WIVB and Emerson College.
Buffalo’s poll of likely voters showed Byron Brown with 50% support in Buffalo’s mayoral race, compared with 40% support for India Walton.
Walton’s campaign tells News 4, “The polls showed that we also lost the primaries. So we proved the skeptics wrong and we intend to do it again in November. “
Mayor Brown said: “I feel really good about it. I am grateful to the Buffalo voters for their confidence. “
Brown lost the Democratic primary to Walton in June and now has no line to run in November. Plan to start an active writing campaign.
Sean McElwee, the CEO of another Connecticut voting body called Data for Progress, also looked at the WIVB / Emerson College poll. He thinks the Buffalo mayoral race will be much closer to ten points when he actually faces a ballot that doesn’t have Byron Brown’s name on it.
“There is a lot of game left, a lot of campaign here,” he said. “There’s a decent number of voters who will just look at this and say, ‘Oh, there’s a Democrat, India Walton, I’m a Democrat, I’m going to vote there,’ and they won’t know how to go to the writing column and write someone.”
