Competing Polling in California: Four California-based research companies are also polling on the Democratic Primary. In order of most recently released data: a poll by the Public Policy Institute of California of 435 likely voters, released 5/25/06, has Angelides up by 3 points over Westley, with 33% choosing other or undecided. A poll by Datamar, Inc. of 542 high-propensity registered voters, released 5/18/06, has Angelides up by 4 points over Westly, with 19% "don't know". A Los Angeles Times Poll of 471 likely voters, released 4/29/06, has Westley up by 13 over Angelides, with 45% undecided. A Field Poll released 4/15/06, of 303 likely voters, has Westley up by 11 points over Angelides, with 34 percent undecided. On 4/29/06, after interviewing was completed for the L.A. Times poll but before interviewing began for the Datamar poll, the Democratic Party of California formally endorsed Angelides.
