California: Mark Takano Up by 4 in Internal Poll

In a California House race targeted by both parties, Riverside Community College Board Trustee Mark Takano (D) led by 4 points in a poll conducted for his campaign.

According to a polling memo obtained by Roll Call, the poll, conducted by EMC Research of Oakland, Calif., found Takano ahead of Riverside County Supervisor John Tavaglione (R), 42 percent to 38 percent, with 20 percent undecided. Tavaglione enjoys a 15-point name identification advantage, 55 percent to 40 percent.

Takano and Tavaglione are running for the new Riverside-based 41st district, created during last year’s independent redistricting process. Democrats have an edge in party registration, but both national parties have it on their competitive landscape.

The survey of 500 likely voters in the 41st district was conducted from Aug. 8-12. The sample included both cellphones and land lines, and the survey was offered in English and Spanish. The margin of error was 4.4 points.

Roll Call rates the race as Leans Democratic.
