The political blog CQ Roll Call reported Thursday that the new poll shows Peters, a Democrat, leading DeMaio, a Republican, by 48 percent to 43 percent. The survey has a 4.9 point margin of error.
“Peters enjoys broad support across the district, but particularly among younger voters,” said a GBA Strategies memo obtained by CQ Roll Call. “Peters’ ability to maintain his current advantage will depend in large part on his ability to engage less consistent voters and ensure they come to the polls in November.”
The 52nd District covers much of central San Diego County including Poway, Coronado, and large portions of the City of San Diego.
