Two weeks to the 6/7/05 San Antonio Mayoral runoff, the contest between Phil Hardberger and Julian Castro is a fierce fight, according to SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for WOAI-TV. In a vote today, Hardberger gets 50%, Castro 47% -- within the poll's Margin of Error. Castro defeated Hardberger in the 5/6/05 Primary, 42% to 30%. But: those in the primary who voted for 3rd-place finisher Carroll Schubert now support Hardberger 8:1 over Castro. Hardberger wins among men, older voters, Republicans, Independents, conservatives, college graduates and Whites. Castro wins among women, younger voters, Democrats, moderates, liberals, voters who didn't go to college, and non-whites. The sharpest difference is between Whites, who go 3:1 for Hardberger, and Hispanics, who go 2:1 for Castro.
