What a choice...

So, I got an e-mail from a friend who got polled this weekend on the Mayor's Race. She said it definitely sounded like a push towards Steve Francis, but still unbiased enough to be called a poll. The sad thing - according to my friend - was they ask, if the election were held today, who would you vote for Donna Frye, Jerry Sanders or Steve Francis? That's it. They didn't even allow her to choose Jim Bell. Let's be honest - if that is the threesome you have to choose from, and you are looking to escape by voting for Jim Bell -things have gotten pretty bad for Dems in San Diego. Where's our leadership when we need it?

Some other interesting points about this poll:

They tested if the voter would be swayed to vote for Francis if Frye endorsed him. (Is there something our fair lady hasn't told us? Maybe she is a Republican at heart). Also suggested he may pull from bipartisan support.

They got personal on questions about Sander's reasons for leaving the United Way, citing stress and health problems.

They tested a bunch of questions about illegal immigration and / sanctuary city as a hit on Sanders. Sounds like a typical race-baiting Republican election.

All I can say is... can't we do better?

I was at the local Democratic convention this weekend and I heard the name of state senator Denise Ducheny discussed as a possible candidate for mayor.
