Reilly's Creamed in His Own Poll
- BINDER'S POLLS NOT FAVORABLE TO CLINTON REILLYBy SF Frontlines StaffClinton Reilly still interested in spending millions pursuing a political career? After wasting over $6-Million from his own pocket in the last race for Mayor (finishing fourth after Brown, Ammiano and Jordan), the former political consultant and seminarist, presently Downtown mogul apparently thinks so. David Binder just handled him the results of the last survey he conducted for Reilly.And the results are not good. The questions ranged from whether people gives more credence to the Board of Supervisors or the Mayor and which issues are more important in the minds of the voters. Among the questions is one that list a long list of potential candidates for Mayor that includes Ammiano, Kelley, Migden, Kauffman, Reilly, Alioto and others. Reilly doesn't even get fourth in that one!But he needed the certainty that only gives money. He wanted to know if the voters would vote for him over any other candidate in a race of two. He got crushed, according to workers at the poll service agency.Now, for the new Board of Supervisors, be aware that the poll also shows a losing battle with popularity and that many people think you're not doing anything.As to the issues that are more clearly in the minds of voters: energy crisis; gentrification; housing; rent control and so on. Not much of a surprise.
