Democrat Mayor of Portland Ted Wheeler Could Lose His Re-election


Mayor of the chaotic city of Portland Ted Wheeler is down 11 points to his challenger Sarah Iannarone in a recent poll.

This is good news he’s down 11 points in the polls.

Ted Wheeler has done such a bad job anyone could be better than him right?

Maybe not.

His opponent Sarah Iannarone was recently seen wearing a skirt that had communist leaders on it which included the former communist leader of China Mao Zedong who is responsible for millions of deaths.

Seems like Portland is between a rock and hard place.

Maybe voters should just move.

The city of Portland needs help fast!

There is no lesser of two evils in this coming election.

The Oregonian covered the dilemma:

A new poll of likely Portland voters shows challenger Sarah Iannarone leading incumbent Mayor Ted Wheeler by 11 percentage points.The survey from DHM Research, first reported by Willamette Week on Monday, shows the largest gap between the runoff opponents since the May primary, when Wheeler received 49% of the vote and just missed out on the 50% plus one tally to win the race outright. Iannarone earned 24% of the vote.

Throughout his first term,Wheeler has faced criticism on his leadership in adressing homelessness and other city issues. Vocal disapproval of the mayor has intesified since June and has come from all sides.

The Washington Examiner didn’t stay silent:

A poll shows Portland, Oregon, mayoral candidate Sarah Iannarone is up 11 percentage points over the city’s incumbent Democratic mayor, Ted Wheeler.

A survey conducted by DMH Research on behalf of the Portland Business Alliance shows Iannarone with 41% support and Wheeler with 30% support. Sixteen percent of respondents said they would write in a candidate, and 13% said they were undecided.

The survey had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points and was conducted from Sept.17-22. It is unclear how many people were surveyed.

“Most voters are just tuning in to this race,” said Danny O’Halloran, Wheeler’s campaign manager. “And that’s why such a large number of respondents in this poll are undecided. We are confident that once voters have the opportunity to get to know both candidates, these numbers move decisively in Ted’s direction.”

Portland has been like a warzone under Wheeler’s leadership and his opponent is touting communist leaders.

Is there a third option?

Sadly not, Portland needs a real leader and they need one now.
