Sugar We're Going Down
Nobody wants to 'join Arnold' anymore:
All four of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's ballot initiatives appear headed for defeat in next Tuesday's special election, a new Field Poll shows.
The nonpartisan statewide survey released today also shows that Schwarzenegger is harming his agenda by campaigning for it because a plurality of likely voters said they were less inclined to vote for a Schwarzenegger-backed initiative.
Only 24 percent said his support of a proposition would make them more inclined to vote for it, while 43 percent said it would make them less inclined to support it.
"The thing that's most striking to me is the impact that Schwarzenegger himself is having on his own initiatives," said Field Poll director Mark DiCamillo. "It's got to be disastrous from the governor's standpoint."
