Results of Final 2018 Pre-Primary California Gubernatorial Poll

Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom easily maintains his leading position in the campaign’s final week. Reinforcing last week’s Competitive Edge poll findings, Newsom will face Republican businessman John Cox in November’s general election, barring their complete collapse. Support for both candidates is holding steady and remains strong. Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Republican Assemblyman Travis Allen remain locked in a battle for third place. Educator Delaine Eastin and State Treasurer John Chiang still trail the rest of the field, with the latter losing ground in the last week. Ten percent of likely voters remain undecided with less than a week left in the campaign, making chances of a second-tier candidate closing the gap very slim.
