The ticket of Jack Appelbaum (COL ’14) and Maggie Cleary (COL ’14) is running neck and neck with Nate Tisa (SFS ’14) and Adam Ramadan (SFS ’14) in the GUSA executive campaign, according to a poll conducted by The Hoya on Tuesday and released today.
The two leading tickets each scored 21 percent among likely voters. Shavonnia Corbin Johnson (SFS ’14) and Joe Vandegriff (COL ’14) placed a close third with 17 percent.
The door-to-door poll, which had nearly 800 respondents, showed Spencer Walsh (MSB ’14) and Robert Silverstein (SFS ’14) at 6 percent and Cannon Warren (SFS ’14) and Andrew Logerfo (COL ’14) at 2 percent with just over one week until the Feb. 21 election. However, a plurality of students polled, 30 percent, indicated that they were still undecided, with 11 percent saying they did not plan on voting.
The poll also asked students if they approved of the performance of current GUSA President Clara Gustafson (SFS ’13) and Vail Kohnert-Yount (SFS ’13). An overwhelming 45 percent of students supported the executive leaders versus just 4 percent disapproving and 51 percent saying they had no opinion.
Correction: The total number of juniors polled was 153, 128 of whom identified as likely voters. The percentages displayed in the pie chart reflect the proper statistics.
