CA-Gov: Teachers "Kicking Arnold's Butt"

Posted by Tim Tagaris

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse at the Pepsi Co. Governor's Mansion, there is more polling data out on Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-Wells Fargo).

San Jose State University survey. June 27-July 1, 2005. N=928 adults statewide. (MoE ± 3.2)

Approve: 34%
Disapprove: 55%
Unsure/DK: 11%

In a head to head, the man who vowed to "kick the butt" of teachers, nurses, and other special interests is getting his ass kicked:

San Jose State University survey. June 27-July 1, 2005. N=686 voters statewide. (MoE ± 3.7)

"If there’s a battle over school funding in the upcoming special election in November between Governor Schwarzenegger on one side, and teachers and school administrators on the other side, who are you more likely to support?"

Teachers: 60%
Governor: 31%

These numbers are absolutely horrible. Terrible. Abysmal. The only question remaining is how close a poll would be questioning who people are more likely to support, Arnold, or a ham sandwich.
