Poll Watch: Dianne Feinstein Leading in Democrat Field for California Governor

Dianne Feinstein and Leon Panetta

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. talks with Central Intelligence Agency Director nominee Leon Panetta on Capitol Hill in Washington, Friday, Feb. 6, 2009, prior to the start of Panetta’s nomination hearing before the committee. Feinstein initally voiced concerns over Panetta’s appointment.

This is not too much of a surprise. In a previous poll, it is apparent that California voters like Feinstein and prefer her over the rest of the Democrat field.

The poll results:

  • U.S.Senator Dianne Feinstein: 36%
  • Attorney General Jerry Brown: 14%
  • San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom: 9%
  • Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa: 9%
  • Lt. Gov. John Garamendi: 4%
  • Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell: 3%
  • Ex-Controller Steve Westly: 1%
  • Undecided: 22%

But will the DiFi run for Governor? She is 75 years old and is the new Chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Jerry Brown is definitely running but can Feinstein who has always coveted the Governorship ignore these poll results?

Stay tuned…….

    Feinstein is just the sort of person California needs in order to push the state over the edge on it’s way to fiscal and moral bankruptcy. I’m wondering how she’s held onto her job in the Senate for so long, except for the radical left that keeps putting her back in there.

    And isn’t the Senate Intelligence Committee an oxymoron?

    She is 75 years old and is the new Chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Maybe it should be better for her to fulfill her days with grandchildren.
