Lindsey Horvath trails Bob Hertzberg in new poll of West Hollywood voters

A poll of 300 likely voters conducted by J. Wallin Opinion Research on behalf of the WEHO PAC shows Lindsey Horvath at unusually unpopular levels with just 13% of likely West Hollywood voters supporting her for County Supervisor.

Data was collected between the dates of Sunday Sept. 12 though Thursday Sept. 16 via a telephone survey of likely voters in the November 2022 General Election from throughout the City of West Hollywood. 300 respondents speaking Spanish and English and were contacted on both mobile and landlines.

The survey of this size yields a margin of error of +/-5.2% (95% confidence interval). Sample is stratified that the demographic composition of our results matches the demographic composition of the region surveyed.

179 respondents identified as male and 121 as female. 216 respondents identified as Democrats, 24 as Republican, and 51 declined to state.

The strongest demographic for Horvath was women ages 35-54. Hertzberg’s strongest demographic was adults 65 and older with 45% of the vote. Hertzberg’s weakest demographic was youth ages 18-34 where he got 33% of the vote.

Among definite, probably and leaning voters, Hertzberg gathered 40.3% of the vote to Horvath’s 13%.

The decline in Horvath’s popularity follows a number of decisions by the councilmember including voting to reduce the number of sheriff’s deputies (which has now been postponed until January 2023), and a mural that was painted on the corner of Robertson and Santa Monica Blvd at the Robertson Lane project which Horvath had recently voted to approve.

Horvath’s unpopularity at home also follows the slight she made to West Hollywood voters when she removed all references to WeHo in her bio shortly after succeeding in the June runoff. In addition Horvath removed all references to LGBTQ from her biography which received attention in the Los Angeles Times, LA Magazine, The Acorn among others.

West Hollywood Mayor Lauren Meister has endorsed Bob Hertzberg for County Supervisor, and the WeHo PAC, the political action committee arm of the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, has also endorsed Senator Bob Hertzberg.

Likely turnout model of November 2022 General Election voters (PDI universe 22G7) consists of these voters: [(Voted at least 1 of 9/21 or 6/22), Or (Voted at least 2 of 11/14, 11/18 or 11/20)] & to qualify for universe voter had to have voted 11/20, 9/21, 6/22 or any election in 2021, or re-registered since 9/21. This consists of 18,435 voters (69.4% and 14,266 households (75.1%)

Perhaps we should be less vocal about our dislike of Lindsey. We do want her gone from WeHo.

This is fantastic news, and it probably comes as no surprise to anyone. However, what do the polls for the remainder of LA County indicate? The most important number is the one blockpost

On the other hand Horvath simply does not have the experience to be County Supervisor I’m dumbfounded she got endorsed by the outgoing administration.

Good news. Let’s keep this momentum going. A vote for Hertzberg is also a vote toward getting West Hollywood back on track.

Very happy to hear this! She’s out at the city level and she’ll be out at the county level. Everybody’s rid of her…for now. She’s too politically connected to disappear for a long period

This is great news that probably does not surprise anyone. But what are the polls saying for the rest of LA County? That’s the number that really matters.

The more I do not have to read Horvath the better we all are. Take note Ericsson Shyne.

Bob Hertzberg is my choice too and I am continually impressed in how many initiatives he has championed to make our state a better place to live.
Lindsey has disappointed many in WeHo with her view on abortion, the Nika Soon-Shiong commissioner, conflict of interest with the LA Times, the poorly thought out solutions such as reducing the number of officers protecting our neighborhood. It’s sad that her website removed involvement with WeHo – as if she is not connected to WeHo.
