Biden lead over Trump in California jumps to 40 points... Hillary Clinton lead was 30 points

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/510430-biden-leads-trump-by-nearly-40-points-in-california-poll

Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden leads President Trump by nearly 40 points in California, according to a new poll.

Biden has the support of 67 percent of Golden State respondents in the UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies poll, while Trump has the support of just 28 percent, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Biden’s support in the state is not surprising, but the former vice president has an even wider lead in the poll than the 30-point margin by which Hillary Clinton beat Trump in the state four years ago.


Moreover, the poll found Trump’s approval has dipped down to just 29 percent, according to the Times. The president's support had reportedly held steady in the mid-to-low 30 percent range for nearly his entire tenure in office.

Trump’s decrease in support was mostly among voters who identified themselves as moderate conservatives, dropping 11 points since January, from 76 percent to 65 percent, according to the Times.

“There was a question of whether his support was already so low in the state that it couldn’t go lower,” Berkeley political scientist Eric Schickler, co-director of the Institute of Governmental Studies, told the newspaper.

Schickler said the poll “shows the answer is no.”

1. No surprise here.

California would never be in play. If we win Ohio, Michigan and Arizona as well as playing well in South Carolina and Georgia in November I'll break out the good hooch.

2. In addition to the pandemic, Trump also added insult to injury over the wildfires,

where he withheld assistance and blamed the fires on the failure of Democrats to rake the forest. He also launched a war against California's strict car emissions standards. He hates California for having sanctuary cities too. So even though it's no surprise he's doing terribly, even his few supporters there are peeling off.

Some of the worst wildfires hit rural northern California communities, likely conservative areas.

5. Oh, it is. People associate CA mainly with Dems, but we have LOTS of enclaves of Repubs.

Once you get out of the main urban areas like San Fran and LA, there are so many rural and exurb areas that slant heavily to the right, including the jokers in my district.

4. I REALLY hope this means Garcia will be out of the 25th district as quickly as he got here.

I hate being in one of the only CA districts with a Republican rep.
