Skip to comments.San Diego Mayor’s Race Sees A Mayor Endorsement And New Poll (Bad News)
Posted on 09/26/2012 9:16:30 PM PDT by newzjunkey
Mayor Jerry Sanders created some surprising news Tuesday when he endorsed City Councilman Carl DeMaio to be his mayoral successor. His opponent, Congressman Bob Filner, widened his lead in the mayoral race in a poll released the same day ...
The relationship between Sanders and DeMaio has been notoriously frosty. Sanders said they dont talk much and havent always gotten along. But Sanders said Tuesday he cared about the city too much to "sit out" the endorsement. ...
A 10News and SurveyUSA poll of likely voters out Tuesday put Filner up 12 points over DeMaio, 50 percent to 38 percent.
"Pick a group, and that group is breaking for Bob Filner," Luna said. "Even people over 65 are spit 44-44 in the poll.
"So even male, white males in particular, that you would think he'd be breaking for a Republican candidate aren't breaking for him. And margins with other groups, Latino, African Americans, education for everybody but just for some college, all the groups are breaking fairly significantly for Filner."

With various pickups on the city council and shift in congressional representation I fear this may signal the end of San Diego as the last reliably Republican major city.
All doubt is removed about californication.The smart ones are leaving or have left and only the dumbasses remain.
“Freinenemies”? RELEEE? Does anyone in SD still have a brain?
That’s so sad because San Diego was really the only California city we enjoyed visiting. At one time that state had everything going for it and has squandered everything.
Too bad that they finally get a mayor worth voting for, DeMaio, and now I live outside the city limits.
Filner’s parents were Communist Party members and his father was a Party organizer in Pennsylvania.
For documentation, see “www.keywiki.org”, search under Filner’s name for details and excerpts from congressional hearings.
San Diego does not need a red diaper baby as its mayor.
Are you calling Jim Robinson a dumbass, dumbass?
Why dont you ask him if he is planniong to leave.
Why don't you leave this forum? You can't spell even with a checker. You don't know your second-grade punctuation. You've witlessly insulted the owner's intelligence. Grow up. One could say the same thing you did about the United States for having been so stupid as to elect a Marxist to the Presidency. The point is to defeat them, everywhere. Where better to learn how than in California? Conservatives are needed here more than in Texas or Oklahoma.
You really have anger issues dont you? What’s the matter?
