An overwhelming majority of Californians approve of the unions Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has been attacking while they disapprove of the job Schwarzenegger is doing, according to a new statewide poll.
The poll released Thursday by the Survey and Policy Research Institute at San Jose State University is just the latest to show the governor has been losing support in recent months as he's pushed several ballot measures aimed at curbing the power of Democrats and public employee unions in state government.
Schwarzenegger's approval ratings have fallen from 59 percent of Californians surveyed in January to 34 percent last week. His disapproval rating has more than doubled from 26 percent in January to 55 percent in the new poll.
Meanwhile, 57 percent of registered voters surveyed said they generally approved of labor unions while 32 percent disapproved. If there's a fight over school funding in the Nov. 8 special election, 60 percent of voters said they were more likely to support teachers and school administrators, compared to 31 percent who said they would likely support the governor.Hasta La Vista Ahnie!
Oh and Ahnie had to undergo training to learn how to NOT sexually harass women when he became governor. Apparently, his wimpy wife either couldn't or wouldn't educate him. More on that here where the Fuhrer is quoted as saying:
Now I'm in government, I'm representing people. It is not any more I can make a sexual joke. It's a serious business. So we wanted to have the guidelines? Why are people getting into trouble? Why can people point the finger and say this is sexual harassment?
