OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett held onto a sizeable lead over his challengers in a new poll released Sunday.

Sixty-three percent of likely voters said they would re-elect Cornett to a fourth term. That figure was virtually unchanged from an earlier poll taken February 17-19.

Councilman Ed Shadid gained six percentage points over the last few weeks. In the current poll, 25 percent of likely voters support the Ward 2 councilman in his bid to become mayor.

Dark horse candidates Joe "Sarge" Nelson and Phil Hughes only garnered one percent of support each. The survey showed nine percent of voters remained undecided before the March 4 election.

The News 9/Oklahoma Gazette poll had a sample of 513 likely voters selected at random using landlines and cell phones. Results were weighted by sex and age, and stratified using a model of previous city mayoral elections. The poll was conducted between February 27 and March 1 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.32 percent.
