The latest results from the primary election suggests that City Attorney Carmen Trutanich's re-election hopes will remain on life support until the plug is finally pulled on his political career in the May 21, 2013 runoff.
Last week's polls not only suggested that Trutanich was much closer to Feuer, but that Greg Smith was also in the chase for second place. Those polls were wrong about almost everything, except that Feuer was in the lead.
Feuer's leading position clearly favors him in the runoff. It will strengthen his fundraising ability and mark him as the frontrunner. Many will see Trutanich's distant second place as a referendum on Trutanich's performance as City Attorney, and will likely result in Mike Feuer becoming City Attorney as support for Trutanich continues to wane.
