Sample and Methodology detail

Native daughter Kamala Harris comes from behind to win the support of 23 percent of California Democrats and voters leaning Democratic, with 21 percent for former Vice President Joe Biden, leaving the Democratic primary too close to call, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released today.

Also in the running are Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders with 18 percent and Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts with 16 percent. South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg has 3 percent and entrepreneur Andrew Yang has 2 percent. There are four Democratic contenders with 1 percent and 15 candidates scoring less than 1 percent.

In an April 10 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll, two weeks before he announced his presidential bid, Biden had 26 percent of California Democrats, with 18 percent for Sanders, 17 percent for Harris and 7 percent for Warren.

Looking today at candidates' qualities, California Democrats say:
  • 26 percent that Biden would be the best leader, with 18 percent for Harris, 17 percent for Sanders and 14 percent for Warren;
  • 28 percent that Warren has the best policy ideas, with 20 percent for Sanders, 11 percent for Biden and 9 percent for Harris;
  • 45 percent that Biden has the best chance of beating President Donald Trump, with 12 percent for Sanders, 11 percent for Harris and 8 percent for Warren.
"California Democrats catch the national wave as native daughter Kamala Harris leaps from promising contender to prominent player putting her neck and neck with former Vice President Joseph Biden," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"But who do California Democrats pick as the best candidate to take on President Donald Trump?

"Hands down, it's Biden."

If Sen. Kamala Harris becomes the Democratic presidential nominee, 68 percent of California Democrats say they would be excited.

Sen. Warren as the nominee excites 65 percent of California Democrats, with 58 percent excited by the thought of Biden as the nominee and 55 percent excited by the thought of Sanders as the standard-bearer.

Trump, Harris, Pelosi Approval

Among all California voters, President Donald Trump gets a negative 35 - 60 percent job approval rating, compared to a negative 30 - 64 percent April 10.

Republicans approve 87 - 9 percent of the job Trump is doing, the only listed party, gender, racial, regional or age group to approve. Trump's scores by region range from a negative 42 - 53 percent inland and in the Valley to a negative 21 - 74 percent in the Bay Area.

Harris gets a 45 - 34 percent job approval rating. This compares to a 47 - 30 percent approval rating April 11. Today, negative scores are 11 - 69 percent among Republicans and 36 - 42 percent among independent voters. Democrats approve 79 - 9 percent.

"Golden State Democrats are excited about Sen. Kamala Harris as a presidential candidate, but all voters are hardly excited about the job she's doing in Washington," Malloy said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gets a negative 41 - 48 percent job approval rating. Negative grades are 13 - 81 percent among Republicans and 34 - 56 percent among independent voters. Democrats approve 69 - 24 percent.

From July 10 - 15, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,125 California voters with a margin of error of +/- 3.9 percentage points, including the design effect. The survey includes 519 Democrats and Democratic leaners with a margin of error of +/- 5.7 percentage points, including the design effect.
