Councilman Carl DeMaio, Rep. Bob Filner, Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher and District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis all made stops at a senior home in Pacific Beach. Then, they scattered across San Diego to wave campaign signs, make calls and knock on doors.
All were armed with their respective campaign slogans.
"Reject politics as usual and get us moving forward," said Fletcher.
"The experience is what counts in this," said Dumanis.
"We're going to change San Diego," said Filner.
What does change depends on who wins.
"Fiscal reform, restoring services in our neighborhoods, fixing our roads and getting government out of the way of our small businesses so that we can create jobs," said DeMaio.
Dumanis said, "The message: fixing that education system. That's a real important one... jobs and getting our fiscal house in order."
According to the most recent scientific 10News poll, DeMaio and Filner are the most likely to make it to the November runoff with 31 percent and 28 percent of the vote, respectively. Fletcher is a close third with 23 percent. Dumanis has 11 percent.
However, according to a survey of people who have already mailed in their ballots, Fletcher is a distant third
The survey put DeMaio at 36 percent, Filner at 31 percent, Fletcher at 16 percent and Dumanis at 11 percent.
Fletcher, the independent candidate, said he is not worried about the difference.
"With 48 hours to go a three-way dead heat that tells us we're going to win because we're the only candidate who's moving up [and] surging in the polls," he said.
As for the Republican district attorney, she said she does not sweat the polls.
"I don't put any stock in that poll whatsoever," said Dumanis. "That's the same poll that showed me losing the DA's race and here I am the DA for the last nine years. This is like a basketball game. It's the last two minutes of the game when all the action happens."
