Still, one must ask: Are those who prefer candidates Pantele or Grey any more likely to be reading the Richmond Times-Dispatch, in the first place, than those who might prefer one of the other three? That factor could certainly tilt the poll's results.
Nonetheless, Rev. Dwight Jones supporters have to be somewhat disappointed. They are probably going to try to cast the contest to replace Doug Wilder as a three-man race. The problem is, who can remember anything Jones has ever done in the General Assembly?
Paul Goldman has some work to do. His publicity-seeking proposal to rid Carytown of all wheels made tongues wag over the weekend, but did it really help raise his standing among undecideds?
And, speaking of undecideds, my guess is most voters in Richmond are yet to make up their minds. So, this year's campaign is likely to be quite entertaining.
