Poll: Mayor’s Job Approval Rating Drops

Mayor Jerry Sanders’ job approval slipped 4 percent to 60 percent between May and July, according to a poll commissioned by the San Diego Institute for Policy Research. The group released its poll July 11.

Sixty percent of respondents contacted in late June and early July said they approved of the job Sanders was doing, versus 64 percent in May. Twenty-two percent in the recent survey said they disapproved, versus 17 percent in May.

The sampling error for the poll is plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.

The San Diego Institute for Policy Research describes itself as a nonpartisan think tank. Steve Francis, co-founder of AMN Healthcare, founded and chairs the organization. Pollsters from Competitive Edge Research & Communication contacted 508 randomly selected adult respondents within the city of San Diego by telephone, between June 29 and July 3.

The recent survey found respondents were more willing to hold back their approval for the San Diego City Council. In May, 47 percent of respondents said they approved of the job the council was doing, while 35 percent disapproved. In the recent survey, 42 percent said they approved, while 36 percent disapproved. The number of respondents who said they were unsure grew from 17 percent in May to 22 percent in July.

In addition, pollsters solicited opinions regarding City Attorney Mike Aguirre, and asked several questions about the controversy over the Sunroad Enterprises building near Montgomery Field in Kearny Mesa. Officials, including representatives of the Federal Aviation Administration, say the building is too tall to be near an airport.
