Brooklyn DA's Race: Poll Shows Gentile with Highest Name Recognition and Favorability Rating

Brooklyn, NY - Today, Brooklyn City Council Member Vincent Gentile released the results of an internal poll which point to the Brooklyn’s DAs race as being the city’s most competitive election in 2017.

The poll, conducted by Public Policy Polling, found that among 630 likely voters, Vincent Gentile has the highest name recognition of six candidates in the race for Brooklyn District attorney. Additionally, Gentile has the highest favorability rating of 21 percent, with 65 percent of voters saying they do not have an opinion on the candidate.

In a head-to-head match-up, Acting District Attorney Eric Gonzalez narrowly leads with just 15 percent, followed by Gentile at 11 percent. With 48 percent of voters unsure of whom to support, this indicates that it is a two-horse race between Gonzalez and Gentile, with almost half of all voters still undecided on the race.

Speaking to the results of today’s poll, Gentile stated. "Clearly this poll is encouraging as it demonstrates that my proven track record as a legislator, prosecutor and advocate, has resonated with Brooklynites."
