Scott Wiener Leads Jane Kim by 15 Points in Race for State Senate District 11

Wiener leads among women voters by 13 points; Voters see Wiener as ‘being a strong leader’ and as ‘effective and getting things done’

The Scott Wiener for State Senate campaign has released findings from an internal poll showing Supervisor Scott Wiener with a 15 point lead over his opponent Supervisor Jane Kim.

The poll was conducted from December 8th to December 15th, by EMC Research and Fall Line Analytics among 600 voters in State Senate District 11.

In addition, Wiener has stronger name ID than Kim, and he leads Kim on key candidate attributes like strong leadership and effectiveness. Key findings include:

  • Wiener leads Kim by 15 percentage points, and he maintains this lead after positive and negative attributes are tested for both candidates.
  • Wiener consistently leads Kim among women voters by 13 points.
  • When voters are asked whether characteristics like ‘being a strong leader’ and ‘being effective and getting things done’ better described Wiener or Kim, voters chose Wiener over Jane Kim by a 2:1 margin.
  • 39% of voters have a favorable opinion of Wiener, compared to 26% of voters who have a favorable opinion of Kim.

With only one-third of the voters undecided, Wiener is in an extremely strong position with fewer than five months until the June primary.

Wiener’s fundraising advantage will allow him to communicate his effective leadership and results on housing affordability, water conservation and climate change, healthcare access, public safety, and transportation that will close the undecided gap. Kim is facing an uphill battle, with 61% of Senate District 11 voters having no opinion of her.

In addition, Wiener’s endorsers, including Attorney General Kamala Harris, Senator Dianne Feinstein, State Senator Mark Leno, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, and the California League of Conservation Voters enjoy high favorable ratings with voters.
