Republican Diane Harkey has countered Democrat Mike Levin’s poll released earlier this week. As we reported earlier, the Feldman Group (6/24-27; 400 CA-49 likely voters with a 200 person oversample of those who register No Party Preference) found Mr. Levin leading the race on a 44-41% count, and expanding to 49-46% when those who responded that they are leaning to one candidate or the other are added.
The new Harkey poll, from Public Opinion Strategies (7/15-16; 400 CA-49 likely voters), reports the Republican candidate claiming a similar three-point lead, 46-43%. Ms. Harkey, a member of the California Board of Equalization and hailing from Orange County, leads in the congressional district’s Orange County section 53-42%, and 44-43% in the more dominant San Diego County segment.
