Latest Survey USA Mayoral Poll has Garcetti and Greuel tied at 46%. Nuch is charging on Feuer. Zine leads big
46% Garcetti, 46% Greuel, SurveyUSA finds in its latest KABC-TV pre-election tracking poll on the race for Mayor of Los Angeles. The sea-saw contest had Garcetti leading by 9 points 1 month ago, and Greuel leading by 3 points 2 weeks ago. But today, 05/10/13, the candidates are exactly even, with 8% of likely voters still undecided.Greuel and Garcetti are within 2 points of each other in every age group. Men tip slightly to Garcetti. Women tip slightly to Greuel. Whites and Latinos slightly favor Garcetti. African Americans by 2:1, and Asian Americans ever-so-slightly, favor Greuel. Garcetti leads among Republicans. Greuel leads among Democrats and Independents. Wealthier and well-educated voters favor Garcetti. Less affluent and less educated voters favor Greuel.
Thought to ponder is despite $3 Million plus in spending since March 7, Greuel can do better than even in recent polls.
In the contest for City Attorney, incumbent Carmen Trutanich appears to have made inroads against challenger Mike Feuer. Feuer had led by 18 points in March, then led by 12, then led by 10, and today leads by just 6 points. Trutanich is making up ground among conservatives and among younger voters (..... and don't count out Latino support for Nuch).
In the contest for City Controller, Dennis Zine maintains a 12-point lead over Ron Galperin. There has been little movement in the contest compared to an identical SurveyUSA poll 2 weeks ago.
On the 3 ballot questions about medical marijuana:* Proposition D leads by nearly 2:1, largely unchanged from 2 weeks ago.* Ordinance E trails by 13 points, identical to 2 weeks ago.* Measure F leads by 34 points, largely unchanged from 2 weeks ago.
