Correa leads closest Democrat by nearly 30 points

SANTA ANA, CA—Today, the Lou Correa campaign for Congress released a poll memo showing Correa leading his nearest Democratic opponent, Bao Nguyen, by nearly 30 points. The poll, conducted by Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates, is fresh out of the field, and was conducted from December 13th through December 16th. The initial results show Correa with a decisive lead over all other candidates:

  • 37% Lou Correa
  • 5%   Joe Dunn
  • 4%* Jordan Brandman
  • 8%   Bao Nguyen
  • 12% Adam Nick
  • 1%    Other
  • 33% Undecided

After messaging, Correa’s support grows to 43%, while the other candidates’ totals remain nearly unchanged. The memo showed Correa with a net favorability rating more than double that of any other candidate in the race. To read the polling memo, click here. “It’s remarkable for a candidate in an open seat to start out with such high name recognition and such a big lead, especially this early,” said John Shallman, chief strategist for Lou Correa’s campaign. “This result shows that voters have taken note of Lou’s tremendous record of accomplishment throughout his career for the communities of the 46th district.”

    This is obviously a push poll, or what ever they call it. Also, there is no one named Adam Nick in this race so It looks like this firm accidentally combined candidates form different races.

      Adam Nick ran against Loretta Sanchez in 2014 which is why his name appears; it would have been interesting to see Lynn Schott’s name here though.
