Bluegrass Poll Gives Heiner Lead Over Fischer

by Gabe Bullard on October 27, 2010

For the first time, Republican Hal Heiner has the lead in a poll of the Louisville mayor’s race.

The Bluegrass Poll conducted for WHAS-11 and the Courier-Journal shows Heiner with 51 percent of the vote, compared to Democratic candidate Greg Fischer’s 44 percent.

The first Bluegrass Poll in the race showed the two candidates tied. Subsequent polls have given Fischer the lead. Fischer spokesperson Chris Poynter says internal polls show that the race is even, and the campaign will continue its “get out the vote” efforts as planned.

“The closer we get to November 2nd, the more Democrats are going to get more energized and they’re definitely going to get out and vote Tuesday,” says Poynter.

Heiner campaign manager Joe Burgan says the poll shows that voters who were putting off making a decision have now chosen to side with Heiner.

“People push back making their decisions in these races later and later every year,” he says. “So, based on our internal polling, it matches. People have started to tune into this race to make their decision.”

The poll was conducted between October 21st and 25th, after independent Jackie Green dropped out to endorse Fischer. Polls conducted for Insight’s CN2 news service have given Fischer the lead in the race.
