Former Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch leads City Council member Robert Blackmon 10 points in the St. Petersburg mayoral race, with 37% support, including 39.5% of respondents who have already voted and 34% who plan to, according to a St. Pete Polls survey Saturday among 542 registered St. Pete voters.
Blackmon posted 27% support, with St. Pete City Council member Darden Rice 10 points behind at 17%.
The election is Tuesday. Only 8% of voters polled who have not yet voted said they were still on the fence.
Welch also leads both Blackmon and Rice in hypothetical General Election match-ups.
