Poll: Brown Leads Gov Race, Donnelly Second

Poll: Brown Leads Gov Race, Donnelly Second

A new Field Poll of likely California voters shows incumbent Democrat Jerry Brown far ahead of any rivals in the gubernatorial election, enjoying the support of 57% of likely voters. Second place, with 17%, is Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, a Republican who enjoys Tea Party support. 

Donnelly has been hit by harsh attacks this week for likening illegal immigration to a “war” in a 2006 speech. Donnelly stands by his remarks.

Two other Republicans bring up the rear: 3% for Laguna Hills mayor Andrew Blount, and 2% for former Treasury official Neel Kashkari, whom Karl Rove said recently would be best “to lose to Jerry Brown.”
