Just days before the primary election, a new Senate poll now has former Major League Baseball star Steve Garvey in first place. 

The poll, conducted by the LA Times and the UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies, places Garvey in first for the first time in the race. 


By the numbers: Garvey came in at 27 percent among likely voters in the poll, beating out Rep. Adam Schiff (D–Burbank) for first place. 

  • Schiff, who has repeatedly been in first place throughout the polling cycle, came in at 25 percent. 
  • Rep. Katie Porter (D–Irvine) placed third at 19 percent, the only candidate to come close to Garvey and Schiff. 
  • Rep. Barbara Lee (D–Oakland) has eight percent support in the poll, followed by Eric Early and James Bradley at two percent each. 
  • The poll was conducted from Feb. 22-27 with 6,536 registered voters in California. 

What they’re saying: Garvey said in a statement that he is deeply humbled by the trust and support shown by Californians in the latest poll. 

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