Independent survey shows Bob Filner leading mayor’s race

Bob Filner

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.

  2. Um, this polling firm is an arm of the Democratic party. Your label of “independent” poll either means the LGBT Weekly is very stupid or very biased.
    No credibility.
