in Uncategorized by

Democrat Dwight Dudley and Republican Frank Farkas are locked into a dead head for an open seat in House District 68.

According to a new survey conducted by St. Pete Polls, Dudley is at 41.5% in the polls, with Farkas right on his heels at 40.9%.

Newly drawn, District 68 includes an eastern portion of Pinellas County, encompassing Pinellas Park and northern parts of St. Petersburg.

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.”
