Schwarzenegger's decision to call the 2005 special election, as well as his propositions dealing with teachers' and nurses' unions and other political missteps, brought his approval rating down to 39% April 2006 [2], though in recent opinion polls as of October 2006 he has been leading over his Democratic competitor by ten points or more. During his time in office, Schwarzenegger has come under fire from some conservatives for supporting several taxes on Californians[citation needed] and from some liberals for refusing to sign a bill allowing gay marriage. Later, Schwarzenegger's aggressive push for environment-friendly legislation, his support for stem cell research, gay rights, and opposition to sending the National Guard to the border, made him very popular among the voters, securing his reelection by a wide margine.

Governor Schwarzenegger faced token opposition in the primary and won the Republican nomination. The two front-runners for the Democratic nomination were Angelides and California State Controller Steve Westly (see below). Angelides has reported a recent increase in support for his campaign and has gained union support and support from the core liberal constituency, which were factors that led him to victory in the primary, defeating Westly 48% to 44%.

Of registered Democrats surveyed, 59% say they don't know enough about Angelides to have any opinion about him, with 58% saying the same for Westly [7].


As of May 27, 2006, the Los Angeles Times reported that the race for the Democratic nomination was a virtual tie, with Angelides leading Westly by three percentage points (37%-34%), all within the 3% margin of error. Unusually, 28% of Democratic voters were undecided, and both candidates tried to earn the undecided vote.

In the end, Angelides won 47.9% of the vote to Westly's 43.4% [9].


The period for candidate nominations closed on March 24, 2006 [10].

United States gubernatorial elections, 2006 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1539 words)
In February 2006, Baldacci was given a mere 41% approval rating by the voters of Maine in one poll[2].
Although his early 2006 approval rating was a mildly unfavorable 45 percent, he lead both Republican challengers, Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker and Congressman Mark Green by six to nine points in polls; he has not been able to poll greater than fifty percent.
After the election, he upset much of his base by pushing a state referendum to raise taxes, which was soundly defeated.
