Michelle Wu Dominates First Boston Mayoral Poll

October 13, 2021

The first Boston mayoral election poll is out — and it’s not good for at-large city councilor Annissa Essaibi George.

She trails fellow at-large city councilor Michelle Wu 57 percent to 25 percent in the poll released by WBUR on Wednesday. That’s a 32-point lead for Wu, generally considered the more progressive candiddate in the race. The poll’s margin of error is 4.9 percent.

Wu is far more popular with Boston voters. It showed that 61 percent had a favorable opinion of her while 15 percent saw her unfavorably. Meanwhile, 37 percent had a favorable view of Essaibi George and 25 percent saw her unfavorably.

The poll asked these questions to 501 likely voters.
