I don't understand why you only tested Feinstein against Republican challengers. It would have been worth at least looking at her numbers against Gavin Newsom, Kamala Harris, etc to see how she does against a strong Democratic challenger, given the Top Two primary system.


Don't know why you didn't poll Michael Reagan v. Feinstein. There has been serious talk about Reagan's running.

The truly scary thing about this poll is that 4% of the respondents know who Orly Taitz is and have a favorable opinion of her. Who are these people and why did the ward attendants allow them to answer the phone?

Dustin Ingalls

Reagan said he would not be running almost as soon as the rumors popped up.


Maybe, but denials can be walked back. If polls showed him competitive, he might have started singing a different tune.

Dustin Ingalls

I doubt he'd have been any more competitive than the ones we did test. If anything, less competitive than anyone but maybe Nunes and Taitz.


To Jon (above) --This is because NONE of the DEMOCRATS would have the guts to actually CHALLENGE HER!!! It's a rule they follow implicitly. An INCUMBENT gets first choice. Dianne will hold out until the last possible second before announcing whether she'll run again, and there's little chance she won't. As part of the 1%, being in the Senate's been very lucrative. Check back in Project Censored for their articles about her.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
