Los Angeles: Garcetti leads Greuel by 7 points heading into Tuesday’s mayoral election

With the election just days away to decide Los Angeles’ next mayor, Eric Garcetti leads Wendy Greuel by 7 points, according to results of a new USC Sol Price School of Public Policy/LA Times Los Angeles City Election Poll.

Los Angeles voters go to the polls on Tuesday, May 21, to decide the city’s next mayor. In the latest poll, conducted May 14-16, L.A. City Council member Garcetti is favored by 48 percent of voters compared to 41 percent for City Controller Greuel. Eleven percent of voters are undecided.

This represents a slight narrowing of the race since the last USC Price/LATimes Poll, conducted April 15-17, when 50 percent of voters supported Garcetti compared to 40 percent for Greuel. [cont.]
