While a large majority of Californians approves of the job that Dianne Feinstein is doing as U.S. Senator, voters offer a mixed assessment when asked whether her seeking a sixth term would be a good thing for the state. In addition, assessments turn negative when reminded that the Senator will be 84 years old next year. Nevertheless, most voters would be inclined to back Feinstein were she to run again. CONT.
