CALIFORNIA: A Field poll shows Sen. Dianne Feinstein with just a 41% approval rating, the lowest of her career, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. “For the first time since being elected to the Senate in 1992, a plurality - 44 percent - of Field Poll respondents were "not inclined" to vote for her while 41 percent were.”
CONNECTICUT: Rep. Chris Murphy (D) looks like the man to beat in the Connecticut Senate race, according to a new Quinnipiac poll. He tops wrestling mogul Linda McMahon 49%-38%. In the Democratic primary, Murphy is beating former Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz 36%-26%. McMahon leads former Rep. Chris Shays 50%-35% in a GOP primary. Murphy would have a tougher time in a general election against Shays, but still beats him, 43%-37%. Bysiewicz would beat McMahon, but not Shays.
MICHIGAN: “The state Senate in Michigan voted Thursday to hold its presidential primary on Feb. 28, a move that could bolster the state's influence in the contest, but could also subject it to major penalties at the GOP nominating convention,” The Hill writes. That would be the same date as the Arizona primary.
