The SurveyUSA poll of likely voters from our media partner 10News shows Democratic Congressman Bob Filner leading over Republican City Councilman Carl DeMaio in the San Diego mayor's race 47 percent to 40 percent with 13 percent of likely voters reporting they’re still undecided.
The gap between the two candidates has narrowed some since an identical SurveyUSA poll three weeks ago. Filner is down three points and DeMaio is up two. DeMaio has also recaptured his lead among male voters, though Filner continues to lead in a majority of demographic categories.
Still, DeMaio is ahead in an important group. Of the 24 percent of voters who said they’ve already cast their ballots by mail, 47 percent said they supported DeMaio, while 42 percent went for Filner. SurveyUSA said those who cast ballots early are seen as the most committed voters.
10News expects to release at least one more poll before Election Day on November 6th.
