According to the latest Inweekly/Political Matrix study, challenger Jennifer Brahier (46.4%) has a slight lead versus longtime incumbent P.C. Wu (42.1%) for the Pensacola City Council District 1 seat. The gap between the two candidates is within the margin of error and 11.5% are undecided.
Wu has represented District 1 – the area around the Pensacola International Airport – since 2004. Four year ago, he won re-election easily, beating CJ Lewis, 60%-40%. This time the election may be a different story.
The Baby Boomer age group (45-64) seems to give Jennifer the best path to victory. However, with there being 50 days left until the election, there is still a great deal of campaigning to do.
Political Matrix study polled 209 voters living in Pensacola City Council District 1 with a voting score of 85% for the general election cycles. The voters called were those only with landlines using an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system and during the hours of 4-8 p.m. on Sept. 12-13. The Margin of Error for this study is +/- 6.5% with a confidence level of 95%.
