CLEVELAND — According to a recent survey of likely voters, former Ohio State Sen. Nina Turner has a commanding lead among likely Democratic primary voters for the special election to fill Ohio’s 11th Congressional District seat, vacated by Marcia Fudge, now the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Biden administration.
The poll was paid for by the Turner campaign and conducted by Tulchin Research, a reputable progressive polling agency. It found 50% of those polled would vote for Turner in the Democratic primary special election for Congress, if it were held today. That’s an advantage of more than three-to-one over her nearest competitor in the special election, Cuyahoga County Councilmember Shontel Brown, whom 15% of those polled preferred. Twenty-one percent were undecided.
