SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Liberal hecklers have protested outside Dianne Feinstein’s home. She’s been confronted at a Los Angeles fundraiser and a San Francisco town hall meeting by progressives angered by her skeptical view of single-payer health care and support for some of Donald Trump’s earliest nominees.

Despite her interrogation of Neil Gorsuch at his Supreme Court confirmation hearing, Feinstein’s brand of moderation is showing signs of slipping out of favor in a state that delivered a landslide margin against Trump.

Her public approval rating, while still in relatively positive territory, has ticked down.

“The time has absolutely changed for politicians like her,” said Robert Shearer, a state party executive board member who served as a delegate whip for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign last year.

As California Democratic Party activists convened here over the weekend for their annual convention, Shearer said of Feinstein, “We are not going to tolerate it any more.”
