A new poll of voters in the 69th Assembly District might be the reason that Orange County Labor and the OC GOP machine are trying to squeeze Republican candidate Jose Moreno out of the 69th A.D. primary.
According to the survey memo, “Democrats Tom Daly and Michele Martinez and Republican Moreno lead the pack. Martinez leads all candidates among Latinos and leads Julio Perez, by 16 points. She also leads all candidates in Santa Ana – home to 60% of likely voters. Martinez is also likely to benefit disproportionately from the fact that Democratic women are among the most undecided subgroups in the district initially. And when voters were read profiles of the three major Democrats and a shorter profile of Republican Moreno, Martinez moved into the lead.”
The survey memo also stated that “While Daly’s initial lead is noteworthy, he shows little strength considering he is a countywide elected official and former Anaheim Mayor. Well more than half of voters (57%) district-wide are unfamiliar with Daly, as are nearly half (46%) of voters in his hometown. In fact, his vote in Anaheim is 39%, which is nearly identical to his favorability rating in the city (44%), indicating that he may already have fully capitalized on the easy vote in his geographical base.”
