Brown Holds Huge Leads in California

A new Field Poll finds California Gov. Jerry Brown's (D) public approval rating "has surged to a new high, and he is the overwhelming early favorite to win re-election next year."

Key finding: 58% approve of the job Brown is doing, up seven points from July.

Brown leads his closest Republican challengers, former Lt. Gov. Abel Maldonado (R) and Assemblyman Tim Donnelly (R), by more than 40 points.

Said pollster Mark DiCamillio: "It's overwhelming. Voters may be satisfied enough with Jerry Brown that they never seriously entertain any of the challengers. At least that's what it's looking like at this stage."
