Survey: LA voters answer 9 questions leading up to Nov. 8 election

A Southern California News Group poll, conducted by J. Wallin Opinion Research, surveyed 400 likely voters in Los Angeles about the biggest issues facing the city, which candidates they prefer in the Nov. 8 mayoral election and whether they support the two L.A. initiatives on the ballot. The interviews, which took place from Saturday to Monday, included both English and Spanish speakers, using landlines and mobile phones. The respondents matched the demographic composition of the region. The margin of error is 4.9% points.

1. In general, do you feel things in the City of Los Angeles are heading in the right direction or are things on the wrong track?

2. Thinking about crime and safety in your community now compared to a couple of years ago, do you feel more safe, less safe or about the same?

3. Thinking about homelessness in your community now compared to a couple of years ago, do you feel the problem has gotten better, gotten worse or remained about the same?

4. Which three issues should be the top priorities of the Los Angeles mayor and City Council?

5. The general election for mayor will be held Nov. 8. If the election were being held today, whom would you vote?

6. There are several issues facing Los Angeles. For each item, which mayoral candidate would do the best job addressing that issue?

7. Recently, some Los Angeles council members were caught on tape making racist comments. Do you feel those council members should step down, and resign from their positions, or should they remain in office?

8. If the election were today, would you support or reject L.A.’s Proposition SP, which would create a parcel tax to help fund parks, recreational centers and other open spaces/facilities to increase park equity?

9. If the election were today, would you support or reject L.A.’s Ordinance ULA, which would place a tax on selling/transferring properties valued at more than $5 million to fund affordable housing programs and resources for tenants at risk of homelessness?
