DescriptionThe Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation on Tuesday released an independent public opinion survey of a random sample of 800 registered voters in the city of San Diego.

The poll gauged opinions on San Diegos mayoral election and support for tourism.

Results showed that the race is tightening with Donna Frye and Jerry Sanders leading the field of 11 candidates. Voters were asked whom they would vote for among the field of 11 candidates. Donna Frye led with 37 percent indicating they would vote for her, 27 percent were definite in their intention while another 10 percent said they would vote for her but could also change their mind. Jerry Sanders polled second at 29 percent with 16 percent definitely supporting him and 13 percent indicating they still could switch. Steve Francis and Pat Shea were well behind at 9 percent and 3 percent respectively.

The survey was conducted from June 15 to 19 by the nationally-recognized survey research firm of Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin and Associates. The poll queried the opinions of a random sample of 800 voters whose previous participation in state and local elections identified them as voters with a high propensity to participate in the upcoming local election on July 26. The margin of error for the surveys results is plus or minus 3.5 percent.

Sycuan manages a major entertainment destination and has invested in several hotel properties in the San Diego region," said Daniel Tucker, Sycuan Tribal Council Chairman. "As part of the region's business community, we completed this independent survey to learn how the voters perceive the issues that the next mayor will face as he or she seeks to guide the city out of its current fiscal challenges and deal with the issues faced by the tourism industry in the region."
