Poll shows YJ Draiman is one of two viable outsiders in race for Mayor of Los Angeles – April 2012


I have great news – recently released a poll testing voters’ mood and attitude towards the major candidates in the race for Mayor of Los Angeles. There are several key results from the poll with the most important being that I performed substantially well in most categories. The poll also showed that the race is largely undecided at this point, with 71% of respondents undecided.

The poll acknowledged that I performed “fairly well”.

This poll clearly shows that I am one of the only two viable outsiders in the race for Mayor of Los Angeles. If our campaign has the resources, I am confident we will garner enough votes to win on Election Day.

Please help us keep up the momentum by contributing whatever amount you can afford.

Several key points from the poll pertaining to LA’s Mayor’s race are:

  • 71% of respondents don’t know/undecided about the race.
  • No candidate secures double digits in the overall summary number, with no one garnering a number as high as 8%.
  • By Grade for Mayor Villaraigosa – For those that believe the current Mayor has failed (giving him an “F”) – I secure 15.47%, earning more votes than Eric Garcetti, Jan Perry and Austin Beutner. Beutner is at a mere 3% clearly demonstrating that voters understand he was the right hand of Villaraigosa and is no outsider.
  • By age – I perform with 32-49 year olds with 12.42% of the vote while Zev Yaroslosky garners 10% and Austin Beutner earns 1%.
  • Even in organized labor households I earn double digits at 11.72%, while Beutner remains at 1%.

I am running for Mayor to turn this city around. My opponents have proven that they are not capable of doing it — to turn this City around, as their past performance shows. Together we can revive Los Angeles out of its decades of decline. But to do so, we must elect a whole new leadership that is untainted by current City government and has the peoples interests at heart. 

Thank you again for your continued support.

Be sure to vote your conscience and not be swayed by money and empty promises. 

No candidate should be able to buy his office with money and influence, it defeats the Democratic process.

“To be successful, representative government assumes that elections will be controlled by the citizenry at large, not by those who give the most money. Electors must believe their vote counts. Elected officials must owe their allegiance to the people, not to their own wealth or to the wealth of interest groups who speak only for the selfish fringes of the whole community.”
