Former baseball star Steve Garvey continues to pick up ground with California voters in the Senate race, according to the latest poll. 

Rep. Adam Schiff (D–Burbank), however, continues to maintain the lead. 


The big picture: According to a poll from Emerson College and Nexstar Media, Schiff’s lead has increased from 25 percent to 28 percent. 

  • Garvey, who came in at 18 percent in the last poll, also made gains as he climbed to 22 percent. 
  • Rep. Katie Porter (D–Irvine) placed in third once again, but her support climbed to 16 percent. 
  • Rep. Barbara Lee (D–Oakland) maintained 9 percent support in the poll. 
  • The number of undecided voters dropped to 17 percent from 24 percent. 
  • Eric Early, Christina Pasucci, Jonathan Reiss and James Bradley all polled at two percent, while Sarah Liew was at one percent. 

What they’re saying: “Candidate support varies by age group,” said Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling. “Schiff’s support is highest among voters in their 60s, at 45 percent, and those over 70, with 39 percent, whereas Porter’s strength is among young voters, where she holds 23 percent. Notably, this group has the highest share of undecided voters at 28 percent. Garvey’s strength is also with older voters, with 33 percent support among voters over 70.
