Poll: After dropping GOP, Fletcher doubles support for mayoral bidTop Highlights, Breaking News Thursday, April 12th, 2012
Mayoral candidate and state Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher has doubled his support for the San Diego mayoral race after dropping the GOP according to a recent scientific poll conducted by 10News. The announcement is fresh on the heels of Fletcher’s announcement two weeks ago that he will no longer act on behalf of the Republican party, acting instead as an Independent in San Diego’s mayoral race.
After asking San Diegans, “If the primary election for San Diego mayor were today, who would you vote for?” respondents chose Carl DeMaio first with a 28 percent vote followed by Fletcher with a close 26 percent, essentially placing both candidates at a near-tie. Bob Filner captured 20 percent of the vote while pushing Bonnie Dumanis father back with only a 13 percent vote ratio. Ten percent of San Diegans said they were undecided.
The poll varies widely from one released 10 weeks ago showing significant gains for Fletcher. Compared to the previous survey, Fletcher has doubled his support from 13 percent to his current 26 percent.
The poll rotated candidate names as the question was asked to ensure neutrality.
