Who will rule city hall?

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important.

Today people are buzzing about the LA Times poll that says Antonio Villaraigosa leads James Hahn by 18 points in the race for Mayor. The Angelino calls the news "devastating" for Hahn. While LA Voice scoffs at voter apathy and the tiny number of likely voters (suggesting a write-in for Xeni Jardin), the poll hits the national blogsphere on Daily Kos and the AP isn't far behind. BoiFromTroi reminds us that last time around, Hahn got nasty at the end and this time, the gloves may be coming off. We're waiting to see if the next few weeks become, as The Angelino says, a knife fight in a phone booth.
