M4 Poll: Whitman by 17

leave a comment »

Still waiting for the big-name polls — Field and PPIC — to come out with their latest numbers in California’s heated Republican gubernatorial primary.

Meanwhile, here’s a new set of numbers to chew on, courtesy of M4 Strategies of Costa Mesa, which polls for the Small Business Action Committee.

The results?

Meg Whitman 49%, Steve Poizner 31.5%.

In February, the same poll had Whitman leading, 60%-12%.

Bottom line: both campaigns will spin the numbers their way — for Whitman, a less alarming double-digit lead; for Poizner, a narrowing divide.

Some more poll math:

Whitman’s favorable rating was 54.5%; her unfavorable was 26.8%.

For Poizner, it’s 38.5% favorable; 33.8% unfavorable.
