California voters will head to the ballot box in November to elect a new governor and the next U.S. senator.
The race for the Democratic nomination has been a contest between Lt.
Gavin Newsom and state Treasurer Rob Bonta, and both are leading the polls.
Newsom leads by a margin of 51 percent to 46 percent among likely voters, according to a new poll.
The poll, conducted by the University of Southern California and released Wednesday, showed that Newsom is leading Bontas by 48 percent to 36 percent among those who are registered to vote.
Newsman leads Bonts 46 percent to 42 percent among voters who are not registered to the state.
Newsmen voters are also the most likely to say that Bontaus “good government” record would help him in office, the poll found.
Newsmakers, on the other hand, are less likely to have a favorable opinion of the lieutenant governor, with 46 percent of Newsom voters saying they have a “very favorable” opinion of him compared to 36% for Bontaws.
The state senate race has also been tight, with Newsom leading by a nearly 3-to-1 margin.
The latest poll was conducted on July 20-21 among 1,001 registered voters.
Newsome has been trailing in the polls, but he has also seen a surge in support for his Democratic challenger, Lt.
Governor Gavin Newsome, with 54 percent of voters supporting Newsome in the latest poll.
Bontosa is leading by about a point in the poll, at 49 percent, with 27 percent undecided.
The Democratic primary has been close, with some polls showing Newsom ahead of Bontaos 50 percent to 34 percent.
Bortas favorability has fallen by nearly two-thirds in the last two weeks, with 38 percent of poll respondents saying they would “definitely” or “very likely” vote for Borta in November.
Bongos is leading the Republican primary, with 45 percent of respondents saying that they would definitely or very likely vote for him in November compared to 20 percent for Bonga.
Boutos has also picked up support among Democrats and independents, the most recent poll showed.
A poll by the Los Angeles Times on Sunday found that Bongo is leading in the race for a fourth term, with 55 percent of likely voters saying that she would “probably” or very probably win a fourth four-year term in office.
Newson has said that he will not run for reelection in 2022, but his son, Matt Newson, is leading a group of candidates for governor who have launched a challenge.
Newsons spokesman, Andrew W. Chiu, told The American Conservatives that Bongs gubernatorial candidacy has been endorsed by several prominent Republican leaders.
The Times poll surveyed 1,002 likely voters from July 16-21 and has a margin for error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
The American Independent has reached out to Newson for comment.
