Well, maybe a winner, at least on the internet

Just to point out that WTAE is conducting a poll on its web page about last night's debate. Pat Dowd is winning as of 6:00 AM, 50% to 39% for Ravenstahl and 8% for Carmen Robinson. Of course, this is a voluntary poll, and computer users are not likely a representational cross section of the electorate. In fact, I suspect this is the result Mark DeSantis would have gotten after any one of his debates with Ravenstahl.

But hey, a plurality is a plurality.

Those results mean nothing.

I think I sort of covered that, Matt. And in fact the results have narrowed considerably. If the Mayor pulls ahead will you change your mind?
