Steve Cooley Trails In L.A., Clings To 1-Point Lead Statewide Over Kamala Harris
Cooley is now trailing in L.A. County, 43-37. That's a big change from September, when he was leading 39-28.
Cooley held a 4-point lead statewide in September, 35-31.
For the most part, it appears that groups that traditionally vote Democratic are consolidating their support for Harris, the Democratic nominee. Harris was tied with Cooley among women last month, but has now opened up an 11-point lead with female voters.
The big fear, if you are a Cooley supporter, is that he could get dragged down by Meg Whitman's lackluster performance. Whitman is trailing by 10 points in the latest Field Poll, which may mean that Republican voters don't turn out to support him.
