A recent Public Policy Institute of California poll shows that DeVore has doubled his numbers in only two months. Failed HP executive Carly Fiorina and liberal GOP member Tom Campbell are polling at around 24% each while DeVore has pulled within striking distance at 16%.
DeVore's credentials as a true Constitutional conservative are impeccable: he's been endorsed by Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), Congressman Tom McClintock (R-CA), Congressman Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Mark Levin, Andrew Breitbart, The Tea Party Express, Citizens United, and the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association PAC.
And there's a huge difference between DeVore and his RINO competitors:
• Tom Campbell is a big government, big tax Nixonian Republican; he's a long-time Californian politician with a history of wishy-washy views and a friend of the tax-and-spenders.
• Carly Fiorina is a "John McCain Republican" who uses the conservative brand to burnish her non-existent credentials. In the past, she's supported amnesty for illegal immigrants, the massive federal bailouts, Cap-and-Trade and uber-liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
Meanwhile, Chuck DeVore's background is truly inspirational:

Donate a couple of bucks now -- the stakes are too high for our children and grandchildren. It's not an overstatement to say that the Republic hangs in the balance.
