Schwarzenegger Running Away With Race, Say Polls

“The Governator” has opened up a big lead over opponent Phil Angelides in the November California governor’s race. It’s quite a comeback considering how badly voters spanked Arnold by voting down his four ballot proposals last year. (Kos has the details).

Daily Kos:

It really is a shame, but I’m not seeing how Angelides and the Democrats pull this one off.

SurveyUSA. 8/25-28. Likely voters. MoE 4.4% (No trend lines)

Schwarzenegger (R) 52
Angelides (D) 38

While I like SUSA a lot, I have to note that they’ve never seemed comfortable polling California, so many doubt their results in the Golden State. Unfortunately, the top pollsters in the state seem to agree that Arnold has all the momentum.
