In a U.S. Senate primary, more than a year away (June 2024), Los Angeles Congressman Adam Schiff holds a small, two-point lead over Orange County Congressperson Katie Porter.

CA 2024 Primary Poll

The Berkeley IGS Poll published in the L.A. Times is considered a highly reliable barometer of California voters’ sentiment. The survey queried 5,681 Democrats or No Party Preference voters on February 14 to 20, 2023 (± 2 percentage points).

In a poll release last November from Katie Porter, she and Schiff were tied. The poll included Republican voters and had a 16 percent undecided. The last poll had 39 percent of voters undecided. More than two-fifths did not have an opinion on the two front runners.

At the start of the race, the latest poll shows a very tight race, with differences in candidate support among age groups and the degree of progressiveness. Schiff leading among older and more moderate voters.

I like Adam, but he is too old.
