Survey finds Paul Krekorian leads in primary but unable to garner a majority vote as Christine Essel and Tamar Galatzen battle to face him in the run-off
Los Angeles – A poll commissioned by Working Californians of 400 likely voters has found a tight race for second place in the September 22nd Special Election to replace Wendy Greuel for the Los Angeles City Council’s 2nd District seat. The phone survey was conducted by Tulchin Research from August 9th to 11th. The survey found that Assemblymember Paul Krekorian has a lead in the current campaign, drawing nearly a quarter of the vote (23%) with Tamar Galatzen and Christine Essel garnering levels of support within the margin of error of each other (Galatzen with 16% and Essel with 13%). A majority of likely voters are currently unengaged in the upcoming race, as nearly half (48%) remain undecided.
