An Inland Empire political action committee has released information from a poll conducted in the San Bernardino County District Attorney race.
Business Leaders for Fair and Ethical Government PAC commissioned polling in the contest for San Bernardino County District Attorney, and the results aren’t what incumbent Mike Ramos would likely be expecting.
From Friday, March 2 to Monday, March 5, 2018, Probolsky Research conducted a live-interviewer telephone survey among 400-likely voters in San Bernardino County.
In the release of information from the poll, a surprisingly anemic 16.8-percent of voters believe the four-term district attorney should be re-elected. A large block, 34.8-percent of voters, say it’s time to give someone else a chance. The remaining 48.5-percent were either unsure or refused to say.
In what is known as an “Initial Ballot”. The majority of voters really aren’t sure who they would vote for.
Only 19.2-percent of respondents say they would vote for Ramos.
Ramos’ support among all voter demographics and geographical regions was not good.
But the weak support for Ramos plummets further after voters were given the first round of positive and negative informational statements, known as push-polling, regarding Ramos and Anderson. On a “First Informed Ballot Test”, Ramos’ support falls to just 9.5-percent.
In the beginning only 9.0-percent of voters said they would definitely vote for Ramos. But only 4.8-percent of voters stuck with Ramos after hearing his factual history.
The contest between Ramos and challenger Attorney/Law Professor Jason Anderson will be decided June 5.
We are predicting at least a thirty-point margin of victory for Anderson. You heard it here first!
