SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A new poll from the nonprofit think tank Public Policy Institute of California shows how some California races are shaping up ahead of election day on Tuesday Nov. 6.

The race for governor is getting a little bit tighter. Democrat Gavin Newsom is ahead of Republican John Cox, 49 to 38 percent among likely voters in the state.

But the number of likely voters who are undecided increased by three points, to 10 percent.

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein leads over fellow Democrat Kevin De Leon by 16 points among likely voters to retain her seat. And nearly one in four voters polled says they won't even vote in this race.
