Independent survey shows Bob Filner leading mayor’s raceAround the City Thursday, August 2nd, 2012
A poll of San Diego voters shows Bob Filner with a significant 8-point lead in the race for San Diego mayor.
In a survey of 400 likely November voters in the City of San Diego, 40 percent of respondents support or lean toward Filner in the mayor’s race. Thirty-two percent of respondents said they support San Diego City Councilman Carl DeMaio and 29 percent were undecided.
“Despite being outspent and out-advertised by his general election opponent in the run-up to the June 5 primary, Filner’s longstanding record of service in San Diego and his closer alignment to the values held by voters who will cast ballots in the Nov. 6 presidential election provide him a significant advantage in the runoff,” said Evan McLaughlin, a spokesman for the San Diegans for Bob Filner for Mayor 2012 committee.
The poll was conducted by Fairbanks, Maslin, Maullin Metz & Associates of Santa Monica, Calif. between June 28 and July 2.
