POSTED BY KEVIN JAMES FOR MAYOR ON January 16, 2013 Share Share

LOS ANGELES, CA - This evening ABC7, in collaboration with SurveyUSA, announced the results of their poll regarding the Los Angeles mayoral race. The poll was conducted this past Saturday, January 12th and was completed Tuesday, January 15th. According to the results of the poll, mayoral candidate and former federal prosecutor Kevin James is gaining strong momentum against his opposition. In fact, he is the only candidate who is gaining in the polls.

“I am thrilled with the results of the ABC7 poll,” said mayoral candidate and former Chairman of AIDS Project Los Angeles Kevin James. “These results are a clear indicator that my outsider message of fighting for the working class, demanding accountability, and rooting out corruption at city hall are resonating with the voters of Los Angeles.”

According to the results of the poll, Kevin James is just six percentage points behind City Controller Wendy Greuel. In fact, with an estimated 4.3% margin of error, James is in a statistical tie with Greuel.

“The ABC7/SurveyUSA Poll shows Kevin James is now within single digits of making the run-off. As more voters begin to pay attention to the race, Angelenos are recognizing insiders have run city hall into the ground and James is the only viable alternative,” said James’ strategist John Weaver.

“This is a bad sign for Wendy Greuel and the fact that her cronies have stepped up attacks on James indicate her internal polls are making her very nervous,” said James’ campaign manager Jeff Corless.
