Adam Schiff Is Trailing GOP Candidate Steve Garvey in California’s U.S. Senate Race, Polling Shows

The latest polling for the race in California for late Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) old Senate seat shows all Democrat candidates are trailing Republican Steve Garvey.

The heated race includes several high-profile Democrats who are competing in the party’s primary for the general election.

However, GOP candidate and former professional baseball player Garvey inched out ahead of Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and other left-wing House members in a new poll.

Schiff is currently leading the Democrats’ open Senate primary as he competes against Reps. Katie Porter (D-CA) and Barbara Lee (D-CA).

According to a UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies/Los Angeles Times poll released Friday, Garvey received 27% support among likely California voters compared to the rest of the candidates.

The poll shows Schiff has 25% support, followed by Porter at 19% and Lee at 8%.

The survey found the Republican rising by 14 points since January.

Meanwhile, Schiff increased his standing by four points, Porter jumped by two points and Lee fell by one point.

The candidates are vying for the Feinstein’s old seat.

The seat is temporarily occupied by radical leftist Laphonza Butler, the former president of the pro-abortion group EMILY’s List.

The poll indicates that Garvey and Schiff would advance to the general election as the top two vote-getters in Tuesday’s Senate primary, boxing out both Porter and Lee.

However, in a head-to-head battle, Schiff would beat Garvey 53% to 38%, according to the survey.

The poll found that 9% of likely voters remain undecided.

A general election matchup between Schiff and Porter would be much more competitive, as the poll found the two tied at 30% with 40% of the respondents not sure about their choice.

“I am deeply humbled by the trust and support shown by Californians in this latest poll,” Garvey said in a statement.

“This demonstrates that our message of addressing the real issues that Californians care about with compassionate, common-sense solutions is resonating more than the tired political bickering of career politicians.

“It’s clear that people are ready for new leadership that brings us together to build a brighter future for California.”

The UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies/Los Angeles Times poll surveyed 3,304 likely California voters from Feb. 22 to Feb. 27.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2%.

The Democrat vote has been split up among the three prominent House members in the blue state and has become an expensive race for the top.

Schiff is currently leading the Democrat field in fundraising with $31.4 million, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.

This compares to Porter‘s $28 million and Lee‘s $5 million.

The congressman has also far out-spent both of his colleagues at $38.7 million this cycle.

Schiff enters the primary with more cash on hand than Porter and Lee combined.

Garvey, who jumped in the race on Oct. 10, has brought in $2.1 million for the race, according to FEC data.

He has spent $1.4 million and currently has $758,260 in hard dollars.
