Helena Mayor Wilmot Collins Leads Our Early, Unscientific Poll For Senate

While the results are far from scientific, our early (December) poll shows a fairly wide margin for Helena mayor Wilmot Collins in the Democratic Senate primary. He collected support from 59% of those who voted in the survey, with John Mues coming in at 28%, Cora Neuman at 8.6%, and Michael Knoles at 3.

What are the rest of you hearing and thinking about the race?

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.

    • It was a pretty small number. Less than 400. The poll for governor that we posted yesterday got a lot more traction right away for some reason.

      I suspect, like many online polls, some of the campaigns encouraged people to respond.

      That being said, the purpose of both polls is less about measuring support for the candidates and more about generating conversation about the campaigns. Woulr love to hear some takes.
