Schiff leads latest California Senate poll, with Porter close behind

Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff and Katie Porter are still battling for the lead in the California Senate race, but the largest bloc of voters remains united in their opinion: They’re undecided who to vote for, according to Emerson College Polling/Nexstar Media California poll released Friday as the California Democratic Party convention delegates meet in Sacramento.

Schiff, of Burbank, leads with 16%, followed by Porter, of Irvine, with 13%. Retired Los Angeles Dodger Steve Garvey, a Republican, follows with 10%, followed by Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee, of Oakland with 9%. Republican businessman James P. Bradley of Laguna Niguel received  3%, former Los Angeles TV reporter Christina Pascucci and Los Angeles attorney Eric Early both got 2%.

The survey found that 39% of the respondents were undecided. 

Democratic convention delegates are scheduled to vote Saturday to endorse one of the candidates, but it is highly unlikely, given the size of the field, that any of them will secure the 60% of the vote needed to snag the party’s nod for the March 5 primary.

The survey is consistent with others that have been taken over the course of the campaign to replace Sen. Laphonza Butler, who Gov. Gavin Newsom appointed to serve the rest of the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s term. Butler will not seek a full six-year term.
