Poll: Brown leads by double-digits in Gov. race

SACRAMENTO — A new poll shows Democrat Jerry Brown with a double-digit lead over Republican Meg Whitman less than a week before voters decide who will be California’s next governor.

The Field Poll released Thursday found the former two-term governor leading the former eBay CEO 49 percent to 39 percent among likely voters.

It is the third poll released in the past week showing Brown leading a race considered too close to call a month ago.



A political expert at California State University, Los Angeles says no California gubernatorial candidate in the last 50 years has won after trailing by such a margin this close to an election.

The poll surveyed 1,092 likely voters by telephone Oct. 14-26. It has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
