Patrick Little, the white supremacist candidate running as a Republican in the upcoming California Senate race, polled at 0% in a recent survey — a far cry from the 18% he received last month.
Little, who has called for a government “free from Jews,” ended last month’s poll from SurveyUSA in a surprising second place, behind incumbent Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein. But a new poll released by the same company on May 24 showed support for him at minimal levels.
Polling experts believed that last month’s result was an anomaly, the result of SurveyUSA only listing him and one other Republican candidate rather than the party’s full list of 11 hopefuls. But the ensuing infamy did him no favors: He was condemned by the California Republican Party and banned from their convention.
The top two vote-getters in the June 5 primary will advance to the general election regardless of party. Feinstein, who is Jewish, is expected to easily advance to the final vote in November — she received support from 36% of respondents. Behind here were Democrat Kevin de Leon at 11% and Republican James Bradley at 9%. Some 21% of voters announced that they were still undecided.
The statewide survey reached 678 likely primary voters and had a margin of error of 6.1%.
