U-T San Diego survey shows Fletcher wins head-to-head matchups Filner also close, leaving Dumanis in 4th; undecided count high at 35 percent
City Councilman Carl DeMaio holds a slim lead among registered voters in the San Diego mayor’s race, but support for Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher has surged, creating a three-way heat a month before the June 5 primary, according to a new U-T San Diego Poll.
DeMaio, a Republican, leads the way with 22 percent while Democratic Rep. Bob Filner and Fletcher, an independent, are neck-and-neck for second place with 18 percent and 17 percent, respectively. Republican District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis is fourth at 8 percent.
The race appears far from settled: 35 percent of city voters remain undecided.
