In a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we disclose details (actually the full document) of an internal Councilman Jose Huizar Campaign Poll, that shows him leading Supervisor Gloria Molina by nine points, with 18-22% undecided.
Councilman Huizar can't rise above 50% in Internal Campaign Poll.
** Blogger's Note:
In a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we have obtain a copy of an internal Councilman Jose Huizar Campaign Poll (posted below after the jump)
that shows the CD 14 Incumbent leading Supervisor Gloria Molina 45-36% in a one on one matchup. In the voter survey by the same polling group commissioned by the Huizar Campaign's Consultant Parke Skelton in 2010
, 18-22% were undecided. Further, the poll did not included three other candidates Nadine Diaz, Mario Chavez and Alex San Martin. The results were based upon interviews with 351 register voters who are likely to cast a ballot in 2015. The plus, minus on the polling results are 5.2%. Of interest when reviewing the questions and polling numbers, is the timing of the survey, which was done before the announcement of the "Private Settlement" between Councilman Huizar and his former Deputy Chief of Staff Francine Godoy
, regarding her Sexual Harassment Lawsuit against the Princeton Graduate and the City of Los Angeles. In further extrapolating the data from the survey, its readily apparent that despite months and hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in community projects/ name recognition building, the two term Incumbent is in for a tough battle
, especially when the Molina Campaign shifts into gear---Scott Johnson.
Note that the poll commissioned by the Huizar Campaign was taken before the Private Settlement of the Sexual Harassment Lawsuit via former Deputy Chief of Staff Francine Godoy.
Molina's poll numbers rise by a couple of points, even after more information was given about the Incumbent, with 22% undecided.
