Scott: In our town’s upcoming election, the mayor is running for re-election against an opponent whose popularity is currently greater than the mayor’s because of the opponent’s support for a plan that would forbid national chain stores in the downtown area. The mayor and his party should take note of this and pledge to support limiting such stores downtown.

The argument above relies on which of the following assumptions?

A. The mayor, by announcing a limit on national chain stores downtown, would increase voter turnout in the upcoming election.
B. Some voters who plan to support the mayor’s opponent would not do so if the mayor limits national chain stores downtown.
C. The mayor has the authority to limit the opening of national chain stores downtown.
D. The plan to forbid national chain stores downtown is supported by a majority of the town’s residents.
E. Most voters who currently plan to vote for the mayor’s opponent do not currently know of the mayor’s position on this issue.
