St. Petersburg Surveys
 
March 2012 City of St. Petersburg General Survey

Telephone survey of registered voters within the City of St Petersburg, conducted on March 19th and 20th, 2012:

In our mid-March St. Petersburg general city poll, we asked about an all-star matchup for the St. Pete 2013 race for Mayor, bars staying open later and 911 call handling. The Mayor saw his approval raiting go up slightly. City Council saw their approval rating go down slightly. Red light cameras saw their approval go down slightly.

Total people polled: 2609
