There’s a new Field Poll out that has bad news for Governor Schwarzenegger.
There has been a steep drop in the regard that Californians have of the job that Arnold Schwarzenegger is doing as their governor. In a statewide survey completed last week following Mr. Schwarzenegger’s call for a special election this November, the nonpartisan Field Poll finds the governor’s approval rating sliding to 37 percent among registered voters statewide, while 53 percent disapprove of how he’s handling his job.
As recently as last September 65 percent of voters approved and 22 percent disapproved of Mr. Schwarzenegger, while in February 55 percent approved and 35 percent disapproved…
The drop in the governor’s job rating is most pronounced among registered Democrats and non-partisans, according to the Field Poll. Throughout all of 2004, a plurality of Democrats, as well as a majority of nonpartisans, approved of the job he was doing. Now, just 16 percent of Democrats approve, while 76 percent disapprove. Among non-partisans 35 percent approve and 54 percent disapprove, a reversal from a 48 percent approve and 38 percent disapprove rating in February.
Can we have another Recall now? Please?
