Poll Shows Low Support For District Attorney Gascón

Published on Friday, October 20, 2023 | 5:25 am

According to a poll released by the The Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs, incumbent L.A. District Attorney George Gascón job appears to be in peril.

Only 14% of the polled voters said they would vote for him if the election were held today. 

The poll shows a wide-open race for the top-two runoff positions on the ballot in the March primary.  With 52% of the electorate already viewing Gascón unfavorably and only 25% viewing him favorably.

“George Gascón’s policies have not helped make Los Angeles County safer,” said ALADS president Richard Pippin. “This poll shows that voters agree and are looking for a new District Attorney in the next election.”

The poll was conducted by RG Strategies between Sept. 23-26. Seven percent of the respondents said they would vote for Deputy Disrict Attorney Maria Ramirez. Judge Debra Archuleta received support from 6% of the respondents. 

It is not known how many people were polled and what methodology was used to collect the data.

Gascón has come under fire by activists for not prosecuting police officers, and ironically he has come under fire from law enforcement agencies.

Shortly after being elected Gascón announced that his office would no longer prosecute a range of misdemeanor crimes, from resisting arrest to drug possession to making criminal threats.

On March 5, voters will be faced with the decision to re-elect Gascón or choose a new district attorney.

 If no candidate wins more than 50% in the nonpartisan primary election, a runoff election will be held on November 5.
