A new statewide poll shows that more than half of those surveyed think that Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) should not seek re-election in 2018.

The poll, conducted by Berkeley IGS Poll, finds that 52 percent thinks that the 83-year-old should skip seeking a fifth term in office. Feinstein has not declared another run, even though indications point to a high likelihood.

Feinstein has been a pioneer for women in politics, even though many in the millennial generation might not be familiar with her political accomplishments.

Do you want to see Feinstein go for a fifth term? If you are a millennial voter, what do you know about Feinstein?
