As we approach our Mayor’s Debate Tuesday morning at 10:15 on Seawayradio.com (show starts at 9AM) we thought we’d crunch some of the numbers coming across my desk.
We’ve crunched some numbers across the area and via our private polling service.
For Mayor of Cornwall Ontario it’s too close to call right now or even predict. In most polls Mark MacDonald is ahead of Cornwall Mayor Bob Kilger, including the one here on The Cornwall Free News. However private polling tilts that a bit in the Mayors favor.
Alexa is pointing that Mayor Kilger’s website is getting a larger chunk of internet traffic ranked 16 Millionth in the world vs 20 Millionth for Mark MacDonald.
No data registers for Nicole Spahich on Alexa. Ms Spahich has been polling between 3-8 percent public support.
In the council race it’s becoming clear that Cornwall loves current city council and Federal Liberal hopeful Ms Bernadette Clement who is projected to finish first in all of our data and may even out poll either candidate for mayor.
From there it becomes interesting depending on the source you use for your data.
Roughly here is the rankings as of Saturday October 16th 2010.
1) Bernadette Clement
2) Denis Thibault
3) Elaine MacDonald
4) Jason Setnyk
5) Denis Carr
6) Mike Bedard
7) David Murphy
8) Maurice Dupelle
9) Andre Rivette
10) Glen Grant
