I have a half-dozen state and local polls piled up that I've been meaning to discuss, so I hereby declare Friday, May 23 to be poll day. First up:
Topic: California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's job approval rating.
Results: 41% approval, 51% disapproval.
Analysis: After a few good years, Schwarzenegger is back in negative territory. He's clearly paying a price for California's budget shortfall and the economic slowdown. Majorities also disapprove of Schwarzenegger's budget proposal and his plan to borrow against future lottery revenue. The Governator has proven to be a resilient politician, so I wouldn't rule out a recovery, although there is no easy answer to the state's budget problems.
