California Governor: Brown 43%, Whitman 43%

Former eBay CEO Meg Whitman now runs dead even with likely Democratic nominee Jerry Brown in California’s gubernatorial contest.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely California voters finds Republican hopeful Whitman and Brown tied with 43% each. Six percent (6%) like some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are undecided.

A month ago, Brown, a longtime California political figure who now serves as attorney general, posted a four-point lead over Whitman, 43% to 39%. In November, the two were tied at 41% apiece.

Brown continues to maintain a double-digit lead – 46% to 34% – over the other leading Republican in the contest, State Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner. Seven percent (7%) like another candidate, and 13% are undecided. Last month, Brown was ahead 45% to 35%, and in November, he had a 43% to 32% lead over Poznier.
