Following our breaking news post of a couple of days ago showing local Democratic Party survey numbers in the race for San Diego mayor (quickly dubbed the “Bob Filner poll”), SD Rostra has obtained additional internal polling results conducted for Bonnie Dumanis.
The survey, completed more than a month ago by Dumanis pollster The Tarrance Group, notes that the “battle for the top two positions in the primary election for Mayor is a three way race between Dumanis, DeMaio, and Filner”…
Thirty percent (30%) of San Diego primary voters indicate they would vote for Bob Filner, while twenty-six percent (26%) indicate they would vote for Carl DeMaio, and twenty-two percent (22%) indicate that they would vote for Bonnie Dumanis. Nathan Fletcher is down at the bottom with only 14% of the vote, and there are only 7% of San Diego primary voters who remain undecided.

It should clearly be noted, however, that both the Filner poll and this Dumanis document are over a month old. So, let’s put the last three polls in perspective, in order from oldest to most recent (including some more recent Competitive Edge results)…
Tarrance Group for Bonnie Dumanis — Feb. 14-15:
Filner – 30
DeMaio – 26
Dumanis – 22

Undecided – 7
Democratic Party/Bob Filner — Feb. 15-21:

Read what you want from any of this. The only comment from us … Does anyone really believe only seven percent of voters were undecided in mid-February? How about 15 percent?
