State Rep. Charlotte Golar-Richie is in striking distance at 10-percent.
The rest of the candidates are packed in close behind.
“The higher turnout will favor candidates like Felix Arroyo and Charlotte Golar-Richie,” Suffolk University’s Director of Political Research David Paleologos told WBZ NewsRadio 1030. “A lower turnout, which is what most of us expect, would favor those that are institutionally preliminary voters.”
Paleologos said the turnout may also be lower because there are so many candidates and he believes voters prefer a simpler choice.
According to the poll, 19-percent are still undecided.
The preliminary election to replace Mayor Menino is Tuesday, Sept. 24.
