Romney leads in California

As Rick Santorum wins delegates in Louisiana Saturday, the Los Angeles Times publishes a new poll of California Republicans today.

(Mitt) Romney won 42% of registered Republican voters, with his closest rival, Rick Santorum, trailing by 19 points, according to the USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll. Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul were a distant third and fourth.

Yet there remains a palpable lack of enthusiasm for the Republican field. Half of GOP voters said they wished other candidates were running for president.

The California primary is June 5.
