Voters Give Thumbs Down to Gov and May Ballot Measures

The five ballot measures Gov. Schwarzenegger is touting as a way to help the state control its budget are falling short with voters.

A poll by the Public Policy Institute of California finds none has majority support.

Proposition 1A would cap state spending and extend tax increases, while others authorize borrowing and guarantee more school funding.
Gov. Schwarzenegger and state legislators may not be the best ones to help sell those budget initiatives on the May ballot. In a poll by the Public Policy Institute of California, residents give Schwarzenegger an all-time low approval rating of 33 percent.

The Legislature fares much worse, with just 11 percent approval.
