I’ve asked how many mobile phone users were contacted and whether this was a robopoll or a mixture of robocalls with live callers. It’s been known in the past as an automated outfit.
The firm released a poll two weeks before the Chicago mayoral election which showed Wilson placing second behind Toni Preckwinkle and getting 13.3 percent. He finished fourth with 10.6 percent. The firm also polled for Jeanne Ives in the 2018 primary.
