As June Approaches

The federal primary takes place on June 26, and there are seven candidates vying to be the Democrat who will challenge John Faso in the November election. This morning, the online group called "Listen to Us John Faso" issued the following press release, announcing the results of an online poll conducted this week:
"Listen to Us John Faso" is an online group of 2,200 people who oppose Rep. John Faso (R, NY CD-19) and the GOP's toxic policies. Most (although not all) members are voters in New York's 19th Congressional District.
The group has organized events and tracked Congressman Faso's actions with the aim of defeating him in the November 2018 election. In the last few months, as primary candidates have emerged, group members have debated, researched, and interviewed the candidates. The goal is to vet the candidates in the hope of finding the person with the best chance of beating John Faso in the November general election.
The poll was conducted online, and only open to members of the group. Responses were tracked to confirm that only members responded, and that each member responded only once. The results of the poll remained consistent as the sample size increased from 3 percent at the start of the poll, to just under 10 percent at the close of the poll. 
Two hundred and three out of the group's 2,200 members took the poll which was open for a period of four days ending April 19, 2018. Each poll participant was asked to rank the candidates from 1 to 7, with 1 being the candidate they most preferred, and 7 being the least preferred.
Gareth Rhodes is the candidate with the best average result and the highest number of "most preferred" 1st place votes with an average of 2.4. Rhodes received 73 1st place votes. . . .
This bar graph, which accompanied the press release, reports the poll results.
