Poll: Voters Unsure About Dianne Feinstein in 2018

Californians are divided over whether they want incumbent Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to seek a fifth term in 2018 after her current term ends, according to a new Field Poll.

When participants were asked whether they think it is “a good or bad thing” if Feinstein decides to run for reelection, the poll found that a large majority of Democrats (62%) thought it would be “good,” while a three-to-one majority of Republicans (68%) believe it would be “bad” for the state.

Meanwhile, 48% of survey takers who have “no party preference” said they are against her running again. A mere 31% said they would look upon her decision to retake the seat favorably.

“There are clear partisan differences in voter opinions about Feinstein seeking re-election in 2018,” the Field Poll’s Director Mark DiCamillo wrote along with the published findings.

It is interesting to point out that although 44% of voters “approve” of Feinstein’s performance as U.S. Senator so far (while 29% “disapprove”), these same voters are still undecided as to whether they want to see her representing them one more time.

The poll was conducted between September 17 and October 4 of this year among 1,002 registered voters in California. There was a +/- 4.5 percent margin of error.

Feinstein, who is from San Francisco and staunchly liberal, received a plurality of voter support in the San Francisco Bay Area (50%) and Los Angeles County (48%).

Meanwhile, more voters living in the Central Valley (25%)–those hardest hit by California’s fourth year of a crippling drought–and in the portions of Southern California which lie outside of Los Angeles County (39%) were less enthusiastic.
