Most California voters, including more than 50 percent of Democrats, want Sen. Dianne Feinstein to resign from office due to her growing health issues.

Additionally, the new UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies/Los Angeles Times poll shows that nearly two-thirds of Californians registered to vote think that the Democratic senator is not fit for office.

Feinstein, 89, has suffered a series of recent medical issues. She returned to the Capitol earlier this month after an extended absence due to a case of shingles. When returning, however, she was in a wheelchair.

The California Democrat said in a statement that her doctor told her to work a lighter schedule.

When asked how she was feeling, the frail senator insisted: ‘Oh, I’m feeling fine. I have a problem with the leg.’

Of all voters in California, 42 percent say that Feinstein should step down from her office, while 27 percent think she should serve out the rest of her term.

Meanwhile, 52 percent of Democrats want her to resign and the remaining respondents were split at 24 percent on being undecided about the lawmaker and those who feel she should serve out her term.

Republicans are less likely to want to see Feinstein resign – likely feeling that her health issues and absence from Congress in her final year are beneficial to the right with the razor-thin margins in the upper chamber.

Independents also want to see Feinstein out, with 42 percent saying they want her to step down, 26 percent saying she should serve out the term and 32 percent still undecided on what her fate in Congress should be.

Only 20 percent of voters say that Feinstein is still fit to serve.

There are already a handful of Democrats in the House delegation for California looking to take Feinstein’s seat – and voters from the party appear eager to replace her on some key committees, like the Judiciary Committee.

Representatives Adam Schiff, Katie Porter and Barbara Lee have already put their names in the running for the soon-opening California Senate seat.

Republican attorney Eric Early is also running.

This UC Berkeley/LA Times poll on the Senate race shows Early with 18 percent support nearly all Republicans surveyed.

Porter is close behind with 17 percent, followed by Schiff with 14 percent and Lee in last with 9 percent.

A whopping 42 percent of voters, however, are undecided or want someone else to take Feinstein’s seat in 2024.
