But a new analysis from Erik Bruvold, president of the National University System Institute for Policy Research, a local think tank, shows voters who've supported Sanders also supported strong mayor, which passed overwhelmingly with Sanders' backing last month.
Bruvold overlaid election results from Sanders' successful 2008 mayoral campaign and last month's Proposition D vote and found significant support for both Sanders and strong mayor in Carmel Valley, La Jolla , Point Loma, Tierrasanta and College Area neighborhoods. Both Sanders and strong mayor lagged in older city neighborhoods south of Interstate 8.
