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".
