Dianne Feinstein's Popularity Plummets in California

In 2008, when Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-San Francisco) was considering a bid for state governor, polls showed she would have swept the race. But like the economy, politics is cyclical. It seems Californians are changing their tune when it comes to DiFi, the political icon who has remained seemingly unbeatable over the years.

According to the latest Field Poll, her support has plummeted by double digits, with only 43 percent of registered voters  saying they support her. That's a slight 4 percent edge over those who don't. This is the first time that the number of voters who don't like Feinstein nearly match those who support her.

The Chron reports that even pollsters are flummoxed by the remarkable reversal.
