Socialist Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant’s unfavorable rating among voters is 40 percent, according to the latest EMC polling. Back in October 2014, her unfavorable rating was at 30 percent—a total 10 percent growth in less than one year.
On the other hand, last October, Sawant’s favorable rating was at 50 percent. Now it is at 40 percent for Seattle’s favorite socialist. A rational politician would look at a 20-point swing in their favorable/unfavorable rating (from 50-30% to 40-40%) with great concern, and realize their approach is not working
Those numbers may appear like bad news for Sawant’s re-election bid. But, that’s not an assumption that will necessarily convert to reality. MyNorthwest.com,
“In a population of a little over 650,000, EMC only talked to 400 voters.
“That’s a very small sample size. And it’s not just of voters in her district. This is a city-wide poll.”
Sawant is seeking re-election in Seattle City Council District 3, which covers Capitol Hill and the Central District not the entire city. That means only the opinion of District 3 voters count. And, unfortunately, Capitol Hill/Central District voters tend to agree with Sawant on many of the issues she champions.
In all likelihood, Sawant will be around to carry out all her ridiculous publicity stunts in the year to come.
