Two New Polls Show Ami Bera Is In Big Trouble In CA-07
NRCC | August 25, 2016

Bera pollsIt’s clear that Ami Bera’s family campaign finance scandal is taking its toll, as two recent polls show Scott Jones statistically tied with the incumbent. Both surveys were completed before Bera’s father was sentenced for his part in the family’s illegal straw donor scheme, so the latest round of press scrutiny was not factored into the results. It can only get worse from here for Bera.

  • The first poll, released Tuesday, shows Jones within 1 point, the ballot at 46-45.
  • The second poll, released Wednesday, shows Jones leading Bera by 1 point, the ballot at 46-45.

With two polls showing nearly identical results, it is difficult to come to any conclusion other than a tie ballgame between Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones and scandal-ridden Ami Bera. As voters learn more about Ami Bera’s scandals and Scott Jones’ efforts to protect Sacramento families, you can be sure the numbers will continue to trend away from Bera.

NRCC Comment: “Two new polls show Ami Bera is in big trouble after months of scandal have revealed his questionable campaign dealings to 7th District voters. As details continue to emerge about the Bera family’s illegal straw donor scheme, count on more voters who are tired of shady politicians like Bera to turn to Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones as Election Day approaches.” – NRCC Spokesman Zach Hunter
