Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., is ahead by a large margin and Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom will likely succeed Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown in the Nov. 6 election, according to a final pre-election poll from the Public Policy Institute of California.

“It’s in keeping with the fact that most people think things are going in the right direction in the state and that they’re expecting good economic times in the state and the country,” said PPIC president Mark Baldassare, reports Politico. “It’s not a change election from that point of view.”

In the senate Race, Feinstein showed a 16-point lead, of 43 percent to 27 percent, over Democratic challenger Kevin de León, a former state Senate leader.

California's top-two primary system sends the two highest vote-getters to the general election regardless of party, allowing de León to take the challenger spot after defeating several  unknown Republicans in the state's primary.

In the governor's race, Newsom holds an 11-point lead of 49 percent to 38 percent over Republican businessman John Cox. Both candidates have commanding support totals in their party, but Cox is ahead with independents by 43-38 percent, according to the polls.

The poll also showed that most voters are likely to reject two ballot measures, including Proposition 6, which repeals a transit-funding gas tax passed by the legislature last year, and Proposition 10, which repeals repealing a quarter-century-old state law restricting cities and counties from enacting rent control.
