Brown Widens Lead Over Newsom

Jerry Brown has widened his lead to twenty percentage points over Gavin Newsom in the 2010 race for governor, according to a new Field Poll. The state attorney general now leads San Francisco’s mayor 47 percent to 27 percent. The former Oakland mayor holds a strong advantage over Newsom among baby boomers, while Newsom is ahead among younger voters, the Chron reports. Although the poll is not good news for Newsom, it does show that he leads all three Republican candidates in the race – in contrast to a recent Rasmussen poll that showed him trailing all three GOP rivals by at least four percentage points.
