DAVIS: A NEW LOW
Reuters reports that California Governor Gray Davis has the lowest approval numbers of anybody, ever:
A Field Poll of 629 registered voters found just 22 percent of voters approved of Davis’ performance as governor — lower than former U.S. President Richard Nixon on the eve of his 1974 resignation. Of the respondents, 58 percent said they would vote to recall Davis, a Democrat, on Oct. 7.
The dismal numbers make the incumbent look ever more like the proverbial 97-pound weakling compared with muscleman-turned-actor Schwarzenegger. The “Terminator” seeks to use discontent with politicians like Davis — a bland three-decade veteran of state government — to lift himself into the governor’s mansion.
“The numbers equal the lowest we have ever recorded for any elected official,” pollster Mark DiCamillo said.
