Feinstein Weak In Poll, But No GOP Challenger Yet

Joe Garofoli, September 16, 2011

Two years ago, two major Republican campaigns swarmed the California GOP fall convention, confident that they could drum up the support to beat three-term incumbent Democrat Sen. Barbara Boxer, who was considered vulnerable because of her low voter-approval ratings.

This year, as 1,000 GOP activists gather today in Los Angeles for their fall convention, things are different, as even the California Republican Party chairman has no idea who will take on 19-year-incumbent Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein next year - and no major candidates have stepped up.

But the landscape may change soon, analysts said, given Feinstein's recent campaign money problems and a Field Poll released today that gives one of California's most consistently popular politicians a 41 percent approval rating, the lowest of her Senate career.

One person considering a run, The Chronicle has learned, is Michael Reagan, a former conservative talk-radio host and the son of former President Ronald Reagan.

Republicans may consider a challenge to Feinstein less foreboding after the survey of 1,001 registered voters found that 39 percent disapprove of Feinstein's performance and 20 percent have no opinion.

The GOP needs to stop wasting valuable recourses on NY, CA, and IL. They are too far gone to be saved. Let them reinvent themselves when the time comes (and it will).

Within the next 5 years or so all three will be bankrupt beyond redemption so much so that not even the Chicoms will want anything to do with them and the great U.S. federal government will be too broke to bail them out.

These will be the really bad times when states (like individuals) will adopt an 'every man for himself' philosophy.

I hope you are all prepared for the inevitable!

Supposedly he’s a RINO. His wife had signs in their yard opposing Proposition 8 in 2008.

NO to Steve Young!

I know they are both RINO’s and they are terrible, but why aren’t Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman even showing a hint of interest ? or Steve Cooley ?

Afraid of the unions. Fiorina and Whitman got pummeled by Teachers Union and Union thugs who ran deceptive ads and of course the illegal domestic who worked for Whitman

I am beginning to think that the best think to do with these democratic strongholds is to put a “sleeper” in their midst. IE a DINO. They can run against the dem incumbent in the primary.

Then a Republican runs against the stealth Republican(DINO), and either way we win.
