Arrogant Butcher Straw Poll: Greg Stanton Leading Again in Week Two

If the customers who feast on the Arrogant Butcher's Turkey Sloppy Joe and wash it down with a Miller High Life have anything to say about who will lead the nation's fifth ... er, that is sixth largest city ... then the honors will go to former Deputy Attorney General Greg Stanton.


The downtown restaurant is looking for a little "air time" by hosting a straw poll to gauge who is going to be Phoenix's next mayor (and it's obviously working). The stunt ends on April 1.

Stanton leads for the second week in a row, as 299 diners have cast their votes for the former councilman. Not a bad climb from the 168 vote he nabbed in the first week.

Here are how the other mayoral candidate's stacked up in the straw poll stunt (as reported by Jason Rose, the restaurant's rep).

Councilman Claude Mattox - 184
Councilwoman Peggy Neely - 109
Wes Gullett - 81
Thane Eichenauer - 44.

In case you missed them, here are the results from Week One:

Stanton: 168
Mattox: 126
Neely: 78
Gullett: 47
Eichenauer: 18
