The Christensen-Ottley and Mapp-Potter gubernatorial teams are going head-to-head, according to new polling results conducted online by the VI Consortium.
With approximately 2,369 votes cast, the poll, which allowed respondents to vote only once per internet IP, has Christensen holding on to a slim 41 percent lead over Mapp’s 38 percent.
Of those whom took the poll, 393 did so on social media platforms, including Facebook and Google Plus. See chart below:
Gender breakdown shows 5.6 percent of pollsters were female, followed by 5.1 percent male. The remaining percentage was comprised of anonymous voters.
Below is a chart with a percentage breakdown of respondents who voted publicly for the candidates. Public voting meant respondents logged into the poll by way of a social media platform.
Below’s chart represents people who voted anonymously for the candidates:
Since our poll was conducted online, it is unclear how many respondents were actually registered and likely voters. The poll opened on Aug. 8 and closed on Nov. 3. Results of a recent scientific poll conducted by UVI, showed 28 percent of respondents intend to vote for the Mapp-Potter team, 23 percent for the Donna Christensen team, 5 percent for the Barnes-Coram team, and 4 percent for Diase-Coffelt-Canegata.
Though the VI Consortium’s poll was not scientific in nature, it shows a race that is not decided, as voters weigh their options in what some deems as the most important election in a generation.
Is the territory headed for a runoff? Will Mapp or Christensen win the election outright? Or, could there be an upset by one of the other candidates? The wait won’t be long.
