LA voters undecided on city controller race, USC Price Poll finds

May 17, 2013

The Los Angeles Times covered the USC Price/Los Angeles Times poll, finding half of Los Angeles voters haven’t made up their minds about the office of controller. The poll also found that mayoral candidate Eric Garcetti has a seven-point lead over Wendy Greuel and that despite making up 44 percent of the population, only 24 percent of Latino voters are expected to show up at the ballots. KPCC-FM reported the poll found more than half of voters would be inclined to vote for a candidate endorsed by former President Bill Clinton. The poll was also covered by the Los Angeles Times in three more stories (links here and here), Los Angeles, L.A. Weekly in two stories (second link here), EFE (Spain), KPCC-FM and MundoFox Los Angeles affiliate KWHY-TV.
