Finally, if Channel 13 wanted to do a great public service, they could take some of those millions they used to spend airing Oprah and use it to conduct a serious, extensive poll on the mayor's race. How can you be Indy's News Leader when you can't even conduct a poll in the most important mayor's race in years?
Brown makes a great point. The election for the next mayor of Indianapolis, as well as the City-County Council, is less than 30 days away and there has been absolutely no polling done by any independent agency.
Channel 13 isn't the only one not doing any polling. The Indianapolis Star hasn't released any polling either, though Star journalist Jon Murray has commented on his Twitter account that he believes they will do it at some point.
Has this ever happened before? 30 days before an election and no scientific, non-partisan polling is released?
