To answer my own question:As the election draws down to its final month, anyone want to share their Top 3 ranking, as well as your prediction for how the vote will shake out?
It's pretty incredible that a month from the election, I have no idea who among Hodges, Hoch, and Frey will come out on top. Dehn and Levy-Pounds will rank 4 and 5, respectively. I feel like I have a better chance of correctly predicting the winners of all 13 council races than guessing the winner of the mayoral race.
(2 and 3 could change places over the next 2 weeks)
As several others have said, the sheen has definitely worn off Frey and I'm far less ok with him than I was earlier in the campaign (hence considering ranking Dehn above him), but Frey will remain in my top 3 as a bulwark against Hoch. If Hodges is eliminated, I still want my vote to count, and I easily prefer Frey over Hoch.
