MIRAMAR – On May 28-30 a statistically random sample of 345 frequent Democratic voters in Broward County Commission District 8 were polled about their views regarding the August 26 Democratic primary election for the County Commission District 8 seat.

According to the poll results, Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief holds a commanding 38.5% lead over her opponent Miramar City Commissioner Alexandra Davis in the County Commission District 8 race. Only 9.9% of respondents said they would vote for Davis.
Sharief also enjoys 62.9% name recognition in her district compared to only 15.6% name recognition for Davis.
54.5% of Democrats rated Sharief favorably compared to 8.4% who rated her unfavorably, giving Sharief a very high 6.49:1 positive to negative ratio. The remaining voters did not know Sharief.
Only 12.7% of Democrats rated Davis favorably compared to 2.9% that rated her unfavorably. The remaining voters did not know Davis. In addition to very low name recognition, Davis had a 4.38:1 positive to negative ratio, considerably lower than Sharief, with more voters rating Davis unfavorably.
