A poll by Muhlenberg College indicated about a third of Allentown residents would vote for Pawlowski again. The Morning Call reporter, Emily Opilo, was surprised about how many city residents were unaware of Pawlowski's pending indictment. She must think that everybody reads The Morning Call!!! In general, the Hispanic minority majority are not well informed on local issues. As I previously posted, Pawlowski has been courting this demographic for months. Many who do know of Pawlowski's troubles are not bothered by the accusations, even if true. With seven candidates in the Democratic primary, it will not take many votes to win.
If there is a silver cloud in this poll for the other candidates, it is the fact that Muhlenberg polls are always far off the mark. Someone suggested that if the other candidates really want to see new leadership in Allentown, that most of them should withdraw, and throw their support to someone at the front of the pack. Having spoken to most of the candidates, I don't see that happening.
