The Fritz-Nolan City Council Race is Even

State Rep. Mary Nolan (D-Portland) has pulled even in her challenge to City Commissioner Amanda Fritz with less than two weeks to go before the May 15 primary election.

A new KATU poll conducted by SurveyUSA shows Nolan with 34 percent and Fritz with 31 among likely voters. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percent.

There’s still a lot of ground for either woman to gain: the poll shows 36 percent of respondents haven’t made up their minds or favor another candidate.

A poll made public by Fritz in March had her leading Nolan 44-10. But a DHM Research survey released by OPB and Fox 12 last week showed Fritz had 32 percent and Nolan 25. Fritz is running for a second term.

The same survey shows Steve Novick is well ahead in his race to fill the City Council seat being vacated by Randy Leonard. Novick has 49 percent, while the other candidates in the race are pulling a combined 27 percent. Another 24 percent of voters remain undecided.

In non-partisan city council races, if no candidate gets a majority of votes on May 15, the two top finishers head into a runoff in the November general election.
