The campaign for Democratic congressional candidate Raul Ruiz released a poll today showing the emergency room physician has a six point lead over Rep. Mary Bono Mack.
The poll, conducted Oct. 20-22, has Ruiz getting support from 48 percent of people who are likely to vote or have already voted. Bono Mack had 42 percent of the vote, and another 7 percent were undecided, the poll showed.
The survey also indicates Ruiz had an 11 point lead among people who had yet to vote, according to the Lake Research Partners’ polling memo.
The survey contacted 409 voters in both Spanish and English. It has a 4.9 percent margin of error. And it shows Ruiz has widened the lead by three points since Lake polled in early October.
Today is the first time either candidate has released polling done after their Oct. 12 televised debate.
Republican polling conducted in early October showed Bono Mack with a nearly 17 percentage point lead.
