NASHVILLE, Tenn. - One week from Thursday Nashvillians will likely know what two mayoral candidates will be headed for a runoff election in September.

Depending on which poll people have listened to from which campaign or interest group, those two candidates could be different people.

NewsChannel 5 requested all of the campaigns' internal polling.

Five of the seven mayoral candidates submitted their polls.

All of those showed their candidate in a favorable light, but there were some definite trends.

Bill Freeman was ranked number one across all of the polls submitted.

Megan Barry was a consistent number two, but David Fox, Howard Gentry and Charles Robert Bone were often within the poll's margin of error for the second place position.

Even the most recent polls showed a large portion of voters were still undecided, so the candidates will likely spend the next week courting those voters the most.
