SurveyUSA Poll on California U.S. Senate Race Includes All 24 Candidates

SurveyUSA has polled the U.S. Senate race in California, and has included all 24 candidates in its poll. See the results here. Incumbent Democrat Dianne Feinstein has 42%, and no one else has more than 4%. 24% are undecided. Even though SurveyUSA is to be commended for doing such an inclusive poll, one wonders whether it is possible to do an accurate poll for a race like this, in which 19 candidates are at or below 2%. The margin of error is a problem in a race like this, as well as the fact that the poll was done using telephones. When there are that many candidates, a face-to-face poll in which the respondent sees the list works better.

    How many of the 24 are EXTREMISTS ???

    i.e. a possible rightwing extremist to go against the leftwing extremist Feinstein ???

    How long have the voters in CA being the chief victim of the U.S.A. Senate gerrymander — i.e. being THE State with the MOST voters ???
