The big political news today in California was Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner’s teleconference — the one where he unveiled an internal campaign poll claiming he’s now within 10 points of rival Meg Whitman in the GOP gubernatorial primary.
That’s 10 points, with still a month to go (Poizner’s pollsters — the same ones who did Scott Brown’s upset win in Massachusetts – had the race at 59-11 in February; today’s numbers were 38-28).
So, is this to believed?
I’m not sure if I entirely buy off on the poll — not until I see a similar set of numbers.
But I do buy into the concept of a tighter primary.
