Californians Negative on Government and Economy

Hosted by

In this year's race for Governor, "California voters are looking for a game-changer [and] they don't see one." They like the candidates for the US Senate, but not the most controversial measures on the November ballot. Those are among the findings of the latest survey of voters by the California Public Policy Institute.

In their first debate, Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman disagreed strongly on the issue of a path to citizenship for the 12 million illegal aliens who live and work in this country. Today, Whitman said she'd be willing to take a polygraph on charges that she knowingly employed an undocumented housekeeper for nine years and then fired her when the housekeeper asked for help in changing her status. Yesterday, Nicky Diaz Santillan appeared at a news conference with LA attorney Gloria Allred. Whitman claims the news conference was a smear orchestrated by the Brown campaign, which denies any involvement.
