Mayoral Runoff Pick'em Poll
Now that the mayoral field has been whittled down to two, who is your pick for the next mayor of Chicago?
Our full field poll before the general election showed heavy support for Vallas with secondary support for Other/Undecided/Bozo. With the latter out and the former in, who gets your runoff vote(s) for Mayor of Chicago?
Predictions & Outcomes
Our original prediction was that no one would break the 50% threshold and a runoff would be needed. We had Chuy and Vallas in the runoff with Vallas winning the whole thing come April 4th. Well, Chuy flopped into 4th place only to get bested by Lori who we thought would come in 4th instead. So with Chuy out and Brandon in, we see the result as the same, Vallas will prevail on April 4th.
Our reasoning is it would seem as if just enough Chicagoans have had enough of the nonsensical bullshit and are looking for someone to pull back on the stick, hard. Many thought (or hoped) that Lori was going to be that change four years ago after eight years of Rahm, but few would have predicted what a complete and incompetent shitshow her tenure would turn out to be.
Assuming Vallas does get in, it’s unlikely much will change at first. The coming summer will still most likely be Summer of Joy 2 with all the usual nonsense that accompanies warmer temperatures. If Brandon somehow manages to pull one off here, we expect a Lori v2.0 that'll double and triple down on the stupidest of the stupid for the next four years, but at least the resulting t-shirts will be amazing.

A " Mostly Peaceful " runoff...
A vote for a CTU socialist is a vote for more of the same of the last 4 years with an Orwellian twist that might just make living/working here worse. Do not be surprised if taxpayers depart en masse, leaving this husk of a formerly great city to die.
