10News/U-T San Diego poll measures net favorability of prominent San Diegans

As Mayor Bob Filner fights for his political life, SurveyUSA interviewed 604 registered voters from the city of San Diego on behalf of KGTV-TV 10 News and the U-T San Diego newspaper. Voters were asked whether they had a favorable or unfavorable impression of 7 prominent San Diego politicos. When the number of "unfavorable" impressions is subtracted from the number of "favorable" impressions, a Net Favorability rating is calculated.

Ranked from highest Net Favorability to Lowest:

  • Former State Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher: Plus 16: 31% Favorable, 15% Unfavorable. (Fletcher is +12 among Republicans and +20 among Democrats).
  • Former State Senator Christine Kehoe: Plus 15: 35% Favorable, 20% Unfavorable. (Kehoe is -17 among Republicans, +33 among Democrats.)
  • Former City Councilwoman Donna Frye: Plus 13: 43% Favorable, 30% Unfavorable.
  • City Attorney Jan Goldsmith: Plus 12: 34% Favorable, 22% Unfavorable.
  • City Councilman Todd Gloria: Plus 9: 25% Favorable, 16% Unfavorable.
  • City Councilman Kevin Faulconer: Plus 3: 20% Favorable, 17% Unfavorable.
  • Former City Councilman Carl DeMaio: Minus 4: 32% Favorable, 36% Unfavorable. (DeMaio is +40 among Republicans, -32 among Democrats.) Filner defeated DeMaio in an election for Mayor in November 2012

A 10 News / U-T San Diego poll released 07/12/13 by SurveyUSA showed embattled Filner with a Minus 24 job approval rating among San Diegans: 32% approve, 56% disapprove of the sitting Mayor.
