The latest Berkeley IGS poll has Adam Schiff moving up in the U.S. Senate race. He's gained 6 points since the March poll and is now ahead of Katie Porter.
The summer’s political news has been about the trials and frontrunner status of Donald Trump. It helps Schiff, who is a hero to Democrats for taking on Trump in the first House impeachment and the January 6 Committee. Democrats are concerned about having an experienced team in DC ready to battle Trump. Nancy Pelosi just announced she was returning for another term to help lead the fight.
Schiff, endorsed by dozens of House colleagues, is helped by his experience and reputation for getting things done in DC. With the retirement of Senator Dianne Feinstein, the state is losing decades of experience and partisan networks.
The largest block of voters (32%) has not focused on the U.S. Senate primary yet, so expect an expensive campaign heating up with the new year.
