Warren and Biden lose ground in California's shifting 2020 Democratic race

  Warren and Biden lose ground in California's shifting 2020 Democratic race The Democratic presidential contest in California remains extremely fluid - but not enough, at least so far, to provide an opening for Michael Bloomberg, who entered the race two weeks ago and was banking on winning big in the delegate-rich state, a new poll for the Los Angeles Times has found. The survey by the University of California, Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies found that both Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts — the commanding front-runner in a September California poll — and former Vice President Joe Biden have lost ground among the state’s likely Democratic primary voters over the last two months. That erosion has benefited Sen.

While most have formed an opinion about McSally , the poll shows many Arizonans still aren't sure who Mark Kelly is.

Retired astronaut Mark Kelly (D) leads Sen. Martha McSally (R) by a narrow 3-point margin in Arizona, a state critical to Democratic chances of recapturing the Senate in the 2020 elections, according to a new poll.

A poll conducted by OH Predictive Insights shows Kelly leading McSally by a 47 percent to 44 percent margin, fueled by a substantial gender gap. Kelly, the husband of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D), leads among women by a 53 percent to 38 percent margin, while McSally leads among men by a smaller 51 percent to 41 percent margin.

Kelly holds a 10-point lead in Maricopa County, which contributes about 60 percent of the statewide vote. Only one statewide candidate in recent memory has won Arizona without carrying Maricopa. He leads among independent voters by a 51 percent to 37 percent margin.

  Planned Parenthood spends $1 million to save Title X Planned Parenthood has until December 20 to convince the Republican-controlled Senate to reverse the changes.The television, radio, digital and mail ads focus on three U.S. Senators — Martha McSally of Arizona, Cory Gardner of Colorado and Thom Tillis of North Carolina — asking constituents to call their offices and ask them to adopt an appropriations bill that would reverse the changes made to Title X that Planned Parenthood says has forced them to exit the program. That language has already been adopted in the House of Representatives version of the Labor, Health and Human Services Bill, but not yet in the Senate's.

Martha McSally of Arizona continues to gain support, according to polling conducted this week. The OH Predictive Insights poll released Tuesday has Kelly with a 46%-41% lead over the Republican incumbent. “We are still in August 2019 and the Arizona Senate race is already exciting — expect

McSally, meanwhile, holds a substantial 22-point advantage in the state's rural communities. She leads Kelly among white voters by a single point, but she holds an overwhelming 58 percent to 32 percent edge among Hispanic voters, the poll shows.

Kelly's edge is slightly lower than the 5-point advantage he held in August, the last time OH Predictive Insights measured the race. Mike Noble, the company's lead pollster, said that shows McSally has "stopped the bleeding."

"Part of it may be due to the current impeachment proceedings, which have given the president and Republicans nationally a bit of a boost. We're seeing that in Arizona as well," Noble said.

Even a year before Election Day, voters appear to be following the race closely.

— A new poll of Arizona voters shows Democrat Mark Kelly leading Republican Martha McSally in a hypothetical matchup in the state's November 2020 special election. While Kelly hasn't officially secured the Democratic nomination for Senate in Arizona , no other major challengers have emerged

McSally was appointed to the other vacant Senate seat in Arizona , which was being held on an interim basis by Jon Kyl following Mark Kelly , astronaut, scientist, U.S. Navy Captain and husband of former U.S "Republican Martha McSally concedes Arizona Senate race to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema".

Just 6 percent of voters have no opinion about or have never heard of McSally, while more than a quarter, 27 percent, said the same about Kelly. Forty-six percent of voters see McSally favorably, while 47 percent see her in an unfavorable light.

"She is incredibly defined," Noble said. "People are really fully decided on her. But Kelly, he's not as fully defined with some of these groups."

The poll hints that Arizona is likely to be a crucial battleground state in next year's presidential contest, too.

President Trump's approval rating stands at 48 percent, according to the poll, while 50 percent say they disapprove of the job he has done in office. Fifty-eight percent of independent voters and 55 percent of those in Maricopa County disapprove.

Republicans currently have a three-seat edge in the Senate, 53-47. While the GOP is defending nearly twice as many seats as Democrats in the 2020 elections, most Republicans up for reelection are from states Trump carried in the 2016 election.

The OH Predictive Insights survey of 628 likely voters was conducted Dec. 3-4 and has a margin of error of 3.9 percentage points.
