In Mayor of Los Angeles Runoff, Garcetti Has Advantage over Greuel, 4 Weeks Till Early Voting Begins:

In a runoff election today for Mayor of Los Angeles, among the top 2 finishers in the 03/05/13 primary, Eric Garcetti leads Wendy Greuel 47% to 40%, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for KABC-TV.

There is a 23-point Gender Gap: Garcetti leads among men by 18 points. Greuel leads among women by 5 points. Garcetti leads among both whites and Latinos.

Garcetti's coalition is broad: he leads, though in single digits, among Democrats, Independents and Republicans. He leads, though in single digits, among those with no college education, those with some college education and those with a 4-year college degree. He leads by double-digits among the least affluent. Garcetti edged Greuel by 4 points in the primary.

In the runoff for City Attorney of Los Angeles, challenger Mike Feuer builds upon his impressive 14-point primary win and today leads incumbent Carmen Trutanich in the runoff 49% to 31%. Feuer leads among young and old, male and female, white, black, Latino and Asian. Trutanich does best among the city's least affluent voters, where he draws within 1 point of Feuer, but otherwise Feuer dominates.
