One great thing about having so many presidential primaries: Tons of exit poll data. Every now and then, the pollsters even ask a question of relevance to state or local government.
For example, California Republican voters gave Governor Schwarzenegger a 68% approval rating. For most politicians, that would be bad news. If a third of your party's most loyal supporters -- those who care enough to show up for a primary election -- don't like you, you're in trouble.
But for Arnold it's hardly a problem at all. His overall approval is around 60%, thanks to his ability to charm independents and Democrats, while irking some Republicans.
By the way, Republicans that approved of Schwarzenegger favored McCain over Romney 53%-27%. Those who didn't went for Romney, 51% to 21%.
