Whitman Closes Gap with Brown

A new Public Policy Polling survey in California shows Jerry Brown (D) leading Meg Whitman (R) by six points, 46% to 40%. In May, Brown led by 12 points.

"Casting a shadow over Whitman's campaign is Arnold Schwarzenegger's continuing status as the least popular Governor in the country. 71% of voters in the state disapprove of the job he's doing and only 19% give him good marks. Generally when you have an outgoing Governor that strongly disliked you're not going to be inclined to replace him with another person in the same party."

Bottom line: "The trend is good for Whitman but with atrocious favorability numbers in a strongly Democratic state she still has an uphill battle to win this election."
