Poll: Republican Larry Ahern up just 1.5% over Democrat Mary Lou Ambrose in House District 66


Democrat Mary Lou Ambrose and and incumbent Republican Larry Ahern are locked into a dead head for House District 66.

According to a new survey conducted by St. Pete Polls, Ahern is at 46.1% in the polls, with Ambrose right on his heels at 44.4%.

Newly drawn, District 66 includes much of central-western portion Pinellas County.

The poll of likely voters was conducted Sept. 1 through Sept. 3.

As for the veracity of St. Pete Polls data, I wrote this analysis about their numbers vs. actual results and determined, “Its results in the most important races outweigh its askew numbers in down-ballot campaigns. Moreover, the residents and voters involved in these races should be grateful for St. Pete Polls’ contribution to the public debate.”
