With the 2018 midterm elections edging closer, people are starting to keep a close eye on several tight races. Just a little over a month ago, Democrats held a 10-point lead in congressional preference over their Republican counterparts, even at a time when Mr. Trump’s approval rating had risen slightly.
One important race on the radar will likely be between Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) and whatever Republican positions himself in first place after the primaries. According to a new poll, shocking results found that more people than one might think support anti-Semitic candidate Patrick Little, who is backed by former KKK leader David Duke.
Local ABC News affiliates and Survey USA found that Little has 18 percent support among likely voters in California. Feinstein is polling at 39 percent of the vote. Feinstein, who is the longest woman serving in the Senate since 1992, has the support of 63 percent of Democrats, 34 percent of independents, and 10 percent of Republicans.
In contrast, Little has the support of 46 percent of Republicans, nine percent of independents, and one percent of Democrats. The next highest candidate is state Senator Kevin DeLeon (D) who has 14 percent of Democrats, seven percent of independents, and one percent of Republicans.
Under California’s system, the two candidates with the highest amount of votes make the November ballot. Based on the current polls, if the midterms were held today, the race would be between Senator Feinstein and Patrick Little. Little doesn’t expect to win, but it would be a victory for him just to get on the ballot.

‘Even if he doesn’t win, he hopes to bait California Republicans into engaging with his anti-Semitic and white supremacist agenda.’
Little does not hide his racism and anti-Semitism. In fact, he campaigns on these ideals and even said in a recent blog post to his supporters that people need to let the government know that “we want to be around other whites, safe from non-whites.” He even signed a blog post with the tagline, “Your Counter-Semitic Candidate” for Senate. Little wrote:
‘We all want what has been taboo until now to say aloud, we want to be around other whites, safe from non-whites. But unless we start voicing that sentiment regularly at the ballot box, all of the places we have retreated to will be eventually overrun by non-whites.’
Little also wrote on Gab, an anti-Semitic platform similar to Twitter, saying:
In another Gab message, he wrote that he wanted a database of all Jews because when Israel is destroyed:
‘we’ll have to ensure that they aren’t hiding among us to subvert us again…There’s only one lawful punishment for high treason – the death penalty.’
Twitter suspended Little for trying to fire up a debate about whether or not the Holocaust really happened in Nazi Germany. He even posted a scary campaign video on YouTube where he said he:
‘woke up to the Jewish question and dedicated my life to exposing these Jews that control our country.’
Hopefully, Feinstein will rake in the votes in November because this guy is scary and it’s hard to believe that someone with such a disgusting mindset has so many followers.
