Huizar camp: objects in rearview mirror may be smaller than they appear


Stewart, Huizar, Cubas


The Jose Huizar re-election campaign has just released the results of a poll by Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin & Metz indicating that Rudy Martinez has no chance of election. From the poll's exec summary:
Huizar holds large leads among men and women, all age and ethnic groups and in every major geographic area of the district. In addition to possessing a massive lead among Democrats, Huizar also leads among Decline-to-State voters and Republicans. After respondents hear positive and negative information about both candidates, Huizar continues to hold an overwhelming lead over his opponent.
&c. He has a 40+ point lead, according to polling.

Reminder: Jose Huizar beat onetime Councilman Nick Pacheco and a crowded field without need of a runoff. Martinez's dependence on cheerleaders Jill Stewart and Scott Johnson has not yet quite borne fruit, as the problematic accusations of the two Republican partisans--accusations regarding "freedom of information" that were met by the City Clerk's office long ago--have failed to gain traction.
