Whitman, Fiorina, Brown Headed to CA General Election; Attorney General Contests Remain Fluid: 36 hours until votes are counted in California's 06/08/10 primary election, three candidates are poised to advance to the general election in November, according to this latest and final SurveyUSA election poll conducted exclusively for KABC-TV Los Angeles, KPIX-TV San Francisco, KGTV-TV San Diego, and KFSN-TV Fresno.

In the Republican primary for Governor, former eBay CEO Meg Whitman defeats state insurance commissioner Steve Poizner 2:1. Compared to an identical SurveyUSA poll 2 weeks ago, the race is essentially unchanged.

In the Republican primary for US Senate, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina defeats former Congressman Tom Campbell 2:1. State Assemblyman Chuck DeVore gets 16%; two other candidates are in single digits. Compared to an identical SurveyUSA poll released 2 weeks ago, the race is essentially unchanged.

Any outcome remains possible in the Republican primary for CA Attorney General, where three candidates today are within 11 points of one another. Los Angeles County DA Steve Cooley gets 30% of the vote today; State Senator Tom Harman gets 25%. Law school professor John Eastman gets 19%. Compared to an identical SurveyUSA poll released 2 weeks ago, Cooley is up 1 point; Harman is down 3; Eastman is up 5. Among those who have not yet voted, 31% are undecided. Any outcome is possible.

In the Democratic primary for CA Attorney General, San Francisco DA Kamala Harris continues to edge businessman Chris Kelly and Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, among voters who have a preference. But: 37% of likely voters vote for someone else or are undecided, making any outcome possible. Incumbent Attorney General Jerry Brown is running for Governor.
