Doesn’t seem that all the ads that the (mostly) union backed California Working Families has pumped into trashing Meg Whitman (as opposed to promoting their guy) have had much effect:
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in California finds Whitman earning 48% support, while Democrat Jerry Brown picks up 40% of the vote. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided.
These new numbers move California from a Toss-Up to Leans GOP in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard.
Their last poll showed the former governor up 43% to 41%. “When leaners are included in the new totals, Whitman posts a 51% to 43% lead over Brown.”
Looks like there’s hope for a real change in the (once and future) Golden State.
