Lt. Governor (Democratic): In the contested Democratic primary for Lt. Governor, State Senator Jackie Speier has pulled ahead of State Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi and State Senator Liz Figueroa. The current poll finds Speier the choice of 30% of likely Democratic primary voters, with Garamendi at 25% and Figueroa far behind at 8%. More than one in three voters (37%) are undecided. The current findings are a reversal of voter preferences from April when Garamendi held the lead over Speier.
Attorney General (Democratic): Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown continues to hold a comfortable lead over Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo in the Democratic primary for Attorney General. The current poll finds Brown favored by 51% of the likely Democratic primary electorate, while just 24% support Delgadillo. One in four voters (25%) are undecided.
Controller (Republican): Former Assemblyman and taxpayer organization president Tony Strickland leads State Senator and business controller Abel Maldonado 32% to 21% in the GOP primary for Controller, while 4% favor other candidates. However, a large 43% of likely Republican primary voters remain undecided.
Controller (Democratic): Fewer than four in ten likely voters in the Democratic primary offer a voting preference in the election for Controller. Among those who can, preferences are closely divided. Currently, 19% of likely voters support Board of Equalization member John Chiang, while 18% are backing State Senator Joe Dunn. A huge 63% remain undecided.
Treasurer (Republican): Only about one in three likely voters in the GOP primary currently express a preference between Assemblyman Keith Richman and state Board of Equalization member Claude Parrish in the Republican primary for Treasurer. Richman is currently the choice of 18% of likely GOP primary election voters, Parrish is favored by 17%, while 65% are undecided.
Secretary of State (Democratic): A majority (56%) of likely voters in the Democratic primary have still not made up their minds in the race for Secretary of State that features two female State Senators, Deborah Ortiz and Debra Bowen. Among those able to choose, Ortiz currently leads Bowen 25% to 19%.
Just once I'd like to see a Dem leaning poll present the option "Not a single one of these bozos" - would likely hit the 70% mark IMO.
Living in California, you get to see the Statists, Communists, and Socialists duke it out. It is a lot of fun until you realize the winner is going to have some power running the place and raising taxes to fund the SEIU's transgendered illegal alien re-education camps.
Orwell would be proud of the clarity of his vision, yet profoundly saddened at the diregarding of his clarion call.
That would be too damn funny for words if it wasn't too damn real...
I voted for Maldonado but have wavered on that vote in the last few days. Curious for his view, Roger Hedgecock suggested Strickland is the better choice but didn't go into details.
I went with Parrish because he's a known entity to me.
And though I haven't ever liked him, I held my nose, closed my eyes and voted for Bilbray rather than skip the run-off with Busby. If nothing else his record shows he's been legitimately TOUGH on immigration.
I voted HELL NO on Meathead Prop 82. And NO on the other state prop. as well.
Hedgecock is probably referring to the fact that maldenado has an eye for the ladies..
I saw him at a party once, right after a speech he gave about family values. At the party he was getting shit faced drunk and flirting heavily with college aged girls. I wouldn't be surprised if he took one home.
