** Blogger's note: A Survey USA Poll sighted by a City Attorney Carmen Trutanich Campaign Press Release below, shows Nuch expanding his poll lead over Mike Feuer. Meanwhile, we have found via the Ethics Commission Website, that the Feuer Campaign has returned only one of the questionable contributions from officials or associates of Bet Tzedek, which we reported on in our previous Mayor Sam Exclusive.

TRUTANICH LEAD WIDENS IN LATEST CITY ATTORNEY POLL
Friday, February 01, 2013 - LA City Attorney Carmen “Nuch” Trutanich’s lead over his nearest rival in the city attorney race has widened to 10 points, according to a SurveyUSA poll commissioned by KABC-TV (Channel 7).
The poll shows Trutanich with 29 percent to 19 percent lead over termed-out former assemblyman Mike Feuer. Two weeks ago, the same poll showed Trutanich with a 6 point lead (27 to 21 percent) over Feuer.
“This is a great sign of momentum for Trutanich,” said Rick Taylor, Trutanich’s chief strategist. “As voters begin to focus on this race, the evidence is clear: City Attorney Trutanich’s record as an independent city attorney, with a winning record of protecting the vulnerable, the taxpayer and our neighborhoods, is resonating with the electorate.”
Trutanich is now a 4-for-4 winner in published polls. The results of four polls testing voter preferences in the City Attorney’s race have been published (two by SurveyUSA, one by Loyola Marymount University’s School for the Study of Los Angeles and one by the Trutanich campaign) and each time, Trutanich has come out on top.
“Sometimes candidates like to boast about all their endorsements and the size of their campaign warchests,” said Taylor. “But that doesn’t amount to a hill of beans unless you’ve got the voters on your side. That’s what the Trutanich campaign has going for it.”
