CA-Gov: Nosedive at Pepsi Co. Governor's Mansion

Posted by Tim Tagaris

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse for the Kindergraden Cop. He has been protested here, there, and seemigly everywhere he goes. Then Ahnold was booed at a commencement ceremony last week. His poll numbers have been getting ugly, but just when you thought it couldn't get any worse at the PepsiCo. Governor's Mansion, "The Field Poll" called California residents:

"Do you approve or disapprove of the way Arnold Schwarzenegger is handling his job as governor of California?" N=954 adults (MoE ± 3.2) -- Conducted by The Field Poll:

Approve: 31%
Disapprove: 58%
Don't Know: 11%

And the trend? Public Policy Institute of California Statewide Survey. May 10-17, 2005. N=2,003:

Approve: 40%
Disapprove: 49%
Don't Know: 11%

Rose Institute, Claremont McKenna College. April 12-16, 2005. N=800 -- MoE ± 3.5:

Approve: 47%
Disapprove: 42%
Don't Know: 11%

The lowest approval rating ever in California Field Poll History for a Governor is 24%; that was Gray Davis on April 14, 2003--and we all know what happened there. Talk of a recall began well before that poll was taken when Davis had numbers closer to the current figures Schwarzenegger is touting.

The two candidates for Governor in 2006 are Phil Angelides and Steve Westley. More on the two challengers coming soon.
