Public Policy Polling releases a poll showing Carly Fiorina opening up a large lead against her primary competitors in the California Senate race, Tom Campbell and Chuck DeVore: 

Fiorina has now opened up a 20 point lead with 41% to 21% for Tom Campbell and 16% for Chuck DeVore.

It's hard to build name recognition in a state as big and expensive as California, and Fiorina is the only one of the Senate candidates who's known to more than half of Republican primary voters. 46% have a favorable opinion of her to 17% with a negative one and 37% having no opinion. By comparison 54% of voters have no opinion about Campbell to 28% with a positive one and 19% with an unfavorable one, and DeVore is even less well known with 62% having no opinion about him to 24% with a favorable one and 14% with a negative one.

This poll comes a day after SurveyUSA released a poll with similar results, showing Fiorina with 46 percent, Campbell 23 precent, and DeVore 14 percent. This marks a surprising and remarkable turn in the California Senate race.
