The Public Policy Institute of California released the results of their statewide voter poll (1/21-30; 1,705 CA adults; 1,367 CA registered voters; 1,042 CA likely voters) and tested the upcoming US Senate race as part of their extensive questionnaire. Because, the pollsters said, no strong Republican is yet in the statewide race, only Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D) and state Senate President Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles) were tested.
According to the ballot test question asked to the self-described likely voters, Sen. Feinstein would lead the Los Angeles state legislative leader, 46-17%. She has an advantage within all voter (Democrats, Republicans, Independents) and racial demographic segments (Latinos, Whites, Other Groups). Her campaign resource lead is overwhelming. Recent year-end cash-on-hand figures find Sen. Feinstein holding $9.8 million in her campaign account as compared to state Sen. de Leon’s miniscule $359,000.
