A new poll by USC Price/Los Angeles Times reports that Eric Garcetti now leads by +10% in the Los Angeles mayor's race over rival Wendy Greuel--50% to 40%. According to an analysis of the survey, Greuel's "dogged fight to win the backing of public employee unions appears to be undercutting her on her home turf in the San Fernando Valley... The survey also found no sign of success for Greuel's effort to gain an edge among women by highlighting her potential to make history as the city's first female mayor. Women preferred Garcetti, 50% to 41%."
