Former lawmaker Mike Feuer and City Councilman Dennis Zine continue to hold leads in their races for citywide Los Angeles offices, new polling showed Monday.

In polling conducted April 29 through May 7 by the Edmund G. "Pat" Brown Institute of Public Affairs at Cal State L.A., Feuer, a former member of the state Assembly and City Council, led City Atty. Carmen Trutanich, who is seeking reelection in next week's balloting -- 35% to 24%, with 41% of voters still undecided. 

Attorney and government efficiency commissioner Ron Galperin trailed Zine, meanwhile, by 15 percentage points -- 33% to 18%, with 49% of voters yet to make up their minds, the poll showed.

The telephone survey of 674 likely voters has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Poll results released earlier showed the mayor's race in a dead heat.

Regarding the city attorney and city controller contests, the poll roughly mirrors a mid-April survey conducted by the USC Price School of Public Policy and the Los Angeles Times. That poll found Feuer leading Trutanich by more than 11 percentage points, with nearly 38% of voters undecided. Zine led Galperin by 12 percentage points, but almost 44% of voters said they hadn't yet made up their minds.

In the March 5 primary, Trutanich finished second behind Feuer, 44% to 30%.  But Galperin was the top vote-getter among a field of six, edging past second-place Zine by just over 4,000 votes.
