Nine percent of those surveyed say they’re still undecided. The poll also shows 2 percent of those surveyed support Williams Walls, while 1 percent back Patricia Van Pelt-Watkins.

The poll of 708 registered voters was conducted Saturday through Wednesday. It has an error margin of 3.7 percentage points.
