Reader Poll: Santarsiero Holds Solid Lead

santarsieroWell, Steve Santarsiero has certainly proven the advantage of getting in early.

After the State Rep. threw his hat into the ring for the 2016 PA-8 Democratic primary, we decided to ask our readers whether they thought Santarsiero or his likeliest opponent, Shaughnessy Naughton, would win.

Naughton has been more reticent to reveal her plans, though, she did tell the Inquirer yesterday that she’s “seriously thinking about running”.

Santarsiero’s supporters came out in force as 1,032 readers said he’ll win the contest.

Meanwhile, 227 respondents chose “someone else” while Naughton received just 163 votes.

Who Will Win the 2016 Democratic Primary in PA-8?

  • Steve Santarsiero (73%)
  • Someone Else (16%)
  • Shaughnessy Naughton (11%)

Total Voters: 1,422

  1. Mr. Sean Ryan do you know for a fact that Mr. Santarsiero is of Mexican heritage or do you just like to stir the pot! I have met him and I believe he may be of original Spanish (Spain is a County in Europe) In any event:

    As if this comment of yours would matter anyway to any thinking person.

    I was once an American Indian as I didn’t get chosen to be a cowboy in our games as children. Yeah, I know: What does my comment have to do with he price of tea in China. Thus, what does your comment have to do with this mans ability to govern.

    I seem to remember reading in my history books that the Irish (I will assume that is your heritage because Ryan is usually Irish) were once told not to apply for jobs. In other words: How dare you play this racial game after what your ethnic group suffered at the hands of past racists?

  2. We can always count on Sean Ryan to elevate the debate. Any moderation here for comments that are obviously intended to be racist?

  3. Steve will join me and our good friend Patrick Murphy in becoming only the third Democrat to represent the 8th district since the New Deal.
