The poll, released Thursday by the UC Berkeley Institute for Governmental Studies, found Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, continuing to lead the field for governor with 30 percent among likely voters, followed by Republicans John Cox, a San Diego County businessman, at 18 percent, and Travis Allen, an Orange County state assemblyman, at 16 percent.
That’s a change from previous results, which had Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, a Democrat, in second or third place. Villaraigosa dropped to 9 percent in the IGS poll, from 17 percent in the survey conducted by the group in December.

Meanwhile, in the Senate race, the poll found Sen. Dianne Feinstein at 28 percent and her main Democratic challenger, former State Senate president Kevin de León, at 11 percent. But little-known Republican candidate James Bradley, a healthcare executive and military veteran, came in only slightly behind at 10 percent, well within the margin of error of de León.
That result challenges the conventional wisdom in California political circles that Feinstein and de León are likely headed to a November face-off.

John Cox is a wealthy candidate who's spends plenty on advertising. He is also a carpetbagger from Chicago who could never get elected in Illinois. He used to have a radio showed called "the progressive conservative". No idea where he really stands on anything.
