Reader Poll: Five Candidates Will Be on the Dem Primary Ballot

balloThe May primary election is just three months away, yet the field for the Democratic nomination for Governor still isn’t set in stone.

Currently there are seven candidates; Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski has already entered and dropped out while a potential Jack Wagner campaign looms on the horizon.

So, with that situation still somewhat up in the air, we decided to ask you our readers how many candidates you believe will be on the Democratic gubernatorial ballot come May 20th.

It appears from the results that our readers feel it’s more likely there will be fewer candidates come election day. 143 said that there would be five Democrats on the ballot while 83 chose four.

32 readers responded that six candidates will make the cut while only 20 voters said it would be the current tally of seven. Finally, three candidates finished last with just the support of 19 readers.

The full results of the poll are posted below:

  1. the number of candidates will be determined by who files petitions on March 11 and who survives petition challenges filed on March 18. this was a pretty lame article. Any rational basis for the continued Wagner speculation??
