In one of his last acts as both mayor and presidential candidate, Pete Buttigieg commissioned a poll of his own South Bend constituents showing he leads the Democratic field and President Trump in a hypothetical matchup—and that the city’s non-white voters approve of his time in office.
The poll comes at a time when Buttigieg is defending his record in South Bend.
Buttigieg hinted at the polling on the trail yesterday.
“In South Bend, Indiana, right now, I’m winning,” he said at a stop in Las Vegas. “I don’t know if we’ve pushed that polling out or not. I’m making news right now…I don’t usually get into poll numbers, but I think it’s important to share that.”
