A new Ogden & Fry poll on Chicago's 2nd Ward aldermanic runoff race shows Brian Hopkins in the lead over Alyx Pattison.
The survey, conducted Tuesday on behalf of Aldertrack, showed Hopkins polling at 55.3 percent to Pattison's 44.7 percent.
Hopkins and Pattison are competing for the open 2nd Ward seat being vacated by Ald. Bob Fioretti (2nd), who made an unsuccessful bid for mayor. Fioretti opted to run for mayor after he was drawn out of his original 2nd Ward and into the 28th Ward during the 2012 remapping process.
Hopkins is a former aide to Cook County Commissioner John Daley, brother of former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, and past president of the Streeterville Organization of Active Residents (SOAR). Pattison is an attorney, Local School Council member and former legislative aide to U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL,9).
The Ogden & Fry poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.61 percent.
