San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's crafty scheme to use his city as a rung on the ladder to something better will, most likely, prove successful this June. In a recent poll conducted by the Newsom campaign, Gavin has an astounding 21-point lead over L.A. City Councilwoman Janice Hahn in the Democratic primary for Lieutenant Governor. SFGate reports, "The new poll from Tulchin Research showed Newsom leading 47 percent to 26 percent for Hahn, with 27 percent undecided."

The odds of Hahn catching up to Newsom are slim to none. Even with this recently-released anti-Newsom ad.
