What do San Diegans Really Think About the 2012 Mayoral Race?

It’s not too often that we get to hear from the average San Diegan about politics.

In our world, the high-propensity voting public tends to consume our daylight (and midnight oil) hours.

The Downtown San Diego Partnership (a client of mine) decided to send KFMB’s funny man, Larry Himmel, out on the streets to gets a pulse on the real scoop. It was shown last evening during the organization’s annual installation and board meeting (the highlight of which included a side-splitting funny “Jerry Unplugged: The Ultimate State of the City Address” from Mayor Jerry Sanders, which led to some great Twitter exchanges).

While we’ll sure miss the Jer-Bear, this video points out one undeniable fact: many San Diegans live sun up to sun down without much worry or care about politics.

Thank God there are people out there willing to take on such tough and thankless work so folks can just live their lives.
