California Voters Think Feinstein Should Resign, New Poll Shows

Late last month, former Secretary of State and two-time failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said in an interview that longtime Sen. Dianne Feinstein, 89, should not resign from her position amid calls from members of her party to step down. Matt covered how she uses a wheelchair and that the left side of her face is “frozen with one eye nearly shut” and how she was absent from her job earlier this year over her health. 

A survey released Monday from Emerson College Polling and Inside California Politics found that a majority (63 percent) of voters think Sen. Dianne Feinstein should resign from her position. On the contrary, 37 percent said they think she should remain in her position and finish her term.

“Older voters are more likely than younger voters to say Feinstein should resign: 68% of voters over 50 think the Senator should resign compared to 58% of voters under 50 who say the same,” Spencer Kimball, the executive director of Emerson College Polling, said of the results.

According to the poll results, Feinstein has a 22 percent job approval rating among California voters. On the other hand, 48 percent disapprove of the job she is doing. Thirty-one percent are neutral. 

Among California voters, 44 percent of voters approve of the job President Joe Biden is doing in office, while 40 percent disapprove and 17 percent are neutral. Vice President Kamala Harris, who used to hold office in the Golden State, holds a paltry 37 percent job approval for her role, while 42 percent disapprove of the job Harris is doing and 21 percent are neutral. 

Among Democrat voters, 72 percent said they’d support Biden in 2024. Seventeen percent said they’d back Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and 7 percent said they’d support Marianna Williamson.

Among Republicans, 53 percent plan to vote for former President Donald Trump. Nineteen percent support Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis, 10 percent support former Vice President Mike Pence, 6 percent support former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and 4 percent support Sen. Tim Scott (SC).

“Trump’s base continues to be voters under 50 and those without a college degree, while DeSantis performs strongest among voters over 50 and those with a college degree, but still trails Trump,” Kimball said in Emerson College’s write-up. “Trump leads DeSantis 60% to 14% among those under 50 compared to 49% to 21% among those over 50. Among voters without a college degree, Trump leads DeSantis 62% to 15%, compared to those with a college degree where he leads 46% to 25%.”

Emerson College asked respondents who they would vote for in several different hypothetical 2024 matchups (via Emerson College Polling):

In a hypothetical match-up between Biden and Trump, Biden holds a 22-point lead, 54% to 32%. Ten percent would vote for someone else and 5% are undecided. Against DeSantis, Biden leads by 26-points, 54% to 28%. Ten percent are undecided and 8% would vote for someone else. 

“Trump outperforms DeSantis against Biden by four points among California voters, mirroring his margin of support compared to DeSantis in Iowa and the last Emerson national survey,” Kimball noted. 

On the issues, California voters said that the economy, homelessness, and housing affordability are their top concerns. 

In addition, 77 percent of voters think addressing the fentanyl crisis should be a priority for the state legislature this year. 

In addition, 77 percent of voters think addressing the fentanyl crisis should be a priority for the state legislature this year. And, last month, a California panel approved recommendations that may provide up to $1.2 million in reparations for black Americans. According to the poll,  50 percent of California voters somewhat (13 percent) or strongly (37 percent) oppose the panel recommendation. Fifteen percent of voters said that they  strongly support the recommendation, while 13 percent somewhat support, and 22 percent said they are neutral. 

The poll was conducted June 4-7 of 10,56 registered voters in California and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
