A recent Panem Free Press poll shows that District 13 governor Celine Oswald is leading incumbent President Cecelia Paylor in a prospective election between the two. President Paylor is facing stiff opposition from other Panem politicians and is even facing resistance from social circles that include Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark, and Gale Hawthorne.
The poll was two parts.
Q.1: Who would you vote for in a hypothetical matchup between President Cecelia Paylor and District 13 governor Celine Oswald?
President Cecelia Paylor – 29%
District 13 Governor Celine Oswald – 45%
Undecided/Unpleased with options – 26%
Q.2: If you chose undecided/unpleased with options, who would you like to see mount a presidential campaign against President Paylor?
Katniss Everdeen (The Mockingjay) – 56%
Jonathan Madison – 29%
Effie Trinket – 11%
Peeta Mellark – 2%
Plutarch Heavensbee – 1%
Other – 1%
The poll results show a clear sign for Katniss Everdeen, who is reportedly considering a presidential campaign. Otherwise, Speaker of the Panem House of Representatives Jonathan Madison could pull massive support and defeat Paylor. However, all candidates face an uphill battle against Celine Oswald, who considered a top-tier candidate. Many have endorsed her in her bid, though it has only been a week since its launch. Governor Oswald very well could be the next president of Panem- it all depends on who runs.
