|Senator Don Perata|
The poll, of which this blogger has not seen the actual questions but may square with anecdotal reports, says that Former Senator Don Perata got 41 percent of 1st choice votes, Oakland City Councilmember Jean Quan got 26 percent of 1st choice votes, and Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan got 14 percent of 1st choice votes.
The other candidates combined earned 12 percent of 1st choice votes.
When asked for a second choice those who picked Kaplan went Perata, and those who went for Quan picked Kaplan. But the CBS report never mentioned the 3rd choice results.
What this means is that CBS has some weird interest in not mentioning the names of the other candidates. In other words, their poll reporting is either sloppy, lazy or fixed.
Why in hell would Channel Five have any interest in the Oakland Mayors race to the degree of conducting a poll? It's not as if they pay property taxes here.
Congrats to Don Perata for being ahead, but the Channel Five poll and its reporting is not to be trusted.
