Brown, Whitman Lead in California Governor's Race

A new DailyKos/Research 2000 poll shows the California gubernatorial race very competitive on both sides.

In the Democratic primary, Jerry Brown (D) leads Gavin Newsom (D), 29% to 20%.

In the Republican primary, Meg Whitman (R) leads with 24%, followed by Tom Campbell (R) at 19% and Steve Poinzner (R) at 9%.

In general election match ups, Brown beats Whitman, 42% to 36%, and tops Campbell, 43% to 35%. However, with Newsom as the Democratic nominee, the match ups are statistical ties.
