Race for Detroit mayor is not close, according to polls

Mike Duggan leads Benny Napoleon by a nearly 2 to 1 margin, according to a recent Deadline Detroit's poll of 500 likely voters (margin of error +/- 4.5%):

Fifty-eight percent of likely voters surveyed said they would vote for Duggan, while 32 percent said they would cast their ballot for Napoleon, the poll showed.

Ten percent of those surveyed said they are undecided, which is not good news for Napoleon; even if he managed to take all the undecided votes, he would still fall short of Duggan’s total.

A Detroit Free Press/WXYZ poll found a similar result last month.

Election day is 10 days away.
