Jerry Brown hits a 59 percent approval rating in California

posted at 1:21 pm on April 9, 2014 by Erika Johnsen

That big ol’ Democratic majority in California apparently isn’t going anywhere for awhile. At 76 years of age, the country’s oldest sitting governor is going for an unprecedented fourth term in office — and if this is any indication, Brown is in for some fairly smooth sailing.

Riding a new high in popularity, Gov. Jerry Brown looks to be coasting toward re-election in November, with GOP Assemblyman Tim Donnelly moving solidly into second place in the June 3 top-two primary, according to a new Field Poll.

The survey “is overwhelmingly good for Brown, but, secondarily, it’s good news for Donnelly,” said Mark DiCamillo, who runs the poll. “Republicans are coalescing around Donnelly” as the candidate they want to see challenge Brown in the November general election.

Among likely voters, 57 percent back Brown, 17 percent support Donnelly of Twin Peaks (San Bernardino County), 4 percent favor Andrew Blount, the Republican mayor of Laguna Hills (Orange County), and 3 percent are for Neel Kashkari, an Orange County investment banker.

It looks like the only possible threats to his reelection right now are in the form of the state GOP coalescing more firmly around a single candidate combined with super-low turnout among unmotivated Democrats:

Republicans will play a disproportionate role in what’s expected to be a low-turnout election in June, and they gravitate toward Donnelly and his pro-gun, anti-illegal immigration and antiabortion views. …

But with 38 percent of GOP voters still undecided on their choice for governor, “there’s a lot of room for change if one candidate can communicate with the voters,” DiCamillo said.

Something tells me the state Democrats aren’t too worried about their prospects at this point, though. Thanks to some very helpfully higher taxes the state recently levied, Brown had a small budget surplus to tout at the beginning of the year, which I wouldn’t doubt is abetting voter contentedness with his performance — never mind that the temporary ‘surplus’ pales in comparison to California’s unsustainable debt burden and unfunded liabilities with which they’re refusing to substantively deal. Just add the bullet-train boondoggle, the state’s above-the-national-average unemployment rate, and the highest state poverty rate in the entire country to the list of things a lot of California voters evidently don’t feel the need to get too riled up about.

Democrats have demonstrated that they don’t actually care about ANY of these failures as long as the Democrats are Democratin’.

“The conventional viewpoint says we need a jobs program and we need to cut welfare. Just the opposite! We need more welfare and fewer jobs.”

- Governor Jerry Brown, 1995

Here’s the Moonbat’s entire quote…in context:

‘The conventional viewpoint says we need a jobs program and we need to cut welfare. Just the opposite! We need more welfare and fewer jobs. Jobs for every American is doomed to failure because of modern automation and production. We ought to recognize it and create an income-maintenance system so every single American has the dignity and the wherewithal for shelter, basic food, and medical care. I’m talking about welfare for all. Without it, you’re going to have warfare for all. Without a universal health care like every other civilized country, without a minimum level of income, this country will explode. You can’t blame the guy at the bottom forever. At some point there’s a reaction and we’ll see that the real criminals are those calling the tune, making the rules, and walking to the bank.’

And, just to be sure, let’s allow millions of uneducated immigrants in to partake in the partay just to prove it!!! /

I lived there for three years. Nice place, but the state is entirely controlled by the liberal mindset that inhabits the coastal corridor (SF to LA) as well as the incestuous relationship between the powerful unions (teachers and corrections) and the Democratic politicians.

I know very many 1%’er types (small business owners, investment folks, etc) and they hate paying the taxes but can’t imagine leaving the SoCal beauty or uprooting their families. So they basically are willingly and grudgingly paying a fee for the “opportunity” to live an work in a beautiful state.

As for the Republican party of CA, it’s dead; they are inconsequential. Interior counties are too sparsely populated to make any electoral difference. As long as the progressives talk a good game and keep the coastal cities teeming with poor people while simultaneously enacting policies that create barriers to any land/housing development in the coastal areas, they will remain in the control of liberals ad infinitum….

Pray for “The Big One” along the San Andreas Fault to shear off all of SoCal and you might, might have a chance of shifting the political balance…..

powerpickle on April 9, 2014 at 1:38 PM

Brown has the advantage of having the state legislature in the hands of hard-left cranks, including the grievance-mongers trying to not only roll back Prop 209 but embed racial preferences in the state constitution.

Against that bunch he comes off looking remarkably centrist.

And, frankly, he’s a little saner this go-round than he was as the Boy Governor back when I was in college.

Mind you, most of the harm he did back then on behalf of the environmentalists and the unions has not been rolled back despite mostly Republicans in the governor’s mansion since then. So he mostly gets to sit around and tut-tut a little, at best engaging in a little weak remonstrating of those interests for whom he opened the door so wide thirty-plus years ago.

I will note, too, that SCA 5 (the attempt to write affirmative action into the state Constition) pits several Democrat interests against one another along racial and cultural lines – blacks, Hispanics, and the white leftists trying to buy favored dhimmitude in the supposed Permanent Hispanic Majority against the Asians – especially the Chinese – and Indians (as in near-East Indians, not Native American Indians).

The blacks are a fading influence, this is their last hurrah. It’s a little short-sighted of the Hispanic agitators to support this, in a decade or two they may wish they hadn’t.

But, for the Asians and Indians this is a backs-against-the-wall issue, this is where their kids get shut out of the good public schools and state universities for a generation, and it’s where they are starting to find that their elected legislators don’t necessarily represent their interests.

This is, longer-term, going to be a far more interesting issue than the arty-stoners vomiting on Google buses in San Francisco. That’s an interesting story in itself, but it won’t reshape state politics.

When California fails, it won’t be due to a failure of progressive programs. It will fail because either the programs didn’t go far enough, or because those nasty republicans hampered proper implementation. The only solution to failed regulation is more regulation.

Oil Can – Asians are overwhelmingly Democratic because they’re overwhelmingly urban/suburban and they go where the power is in those areas.

Culturally they – at least those who escape Cal and UCLA without being indoctrinated – are not part of the progressive hivemind, they are big on property rights and small-business ownership and they tend to have kids.

In some places, people care whether their neighbors are getting hurt by the government or the economy. Not in California.

If 59% of Californians are doing OK and 41% are starving, you can expect about a 59% positive rating for the local politicians.

We’ve reached a point at which competence, objective truth and civic responsibility are meaningless to Americans. It’s the only way to explain Jerry Brown — who’s basically an idiot. California is a disaster. But no one cares, or rather no one has any reference point for either how it could be different (managed more competently) or can surmount their emotional prejudices to envision something different and better, a true common good. We are becoming a nation of idiots.

Illegal aliens over the last few decades have done a number on the state. The last amnesty ensured that Calif eventually wouldn’t be able to again elect a conservative governor. Sad to think that Reagan was elected by this once-envied state.

And traitors, including some who blog at this site, are apparently pushing for a new mass illegal alien amnesty. Shame on them.

DFCtomm on April 9, 2014 at 2:33 PM

bluegill – Let’s remember this state’s elected George Deukmejian and Pete Wilson since Reagan (and Brown, the first time) both of whom pushed policies as conservative as did Reagan when he was Governor.

Oh, and Arnold, who f’ed up big time. Schwarzenegger did more harm to the GOP in this state than illegal immigration has.

The greater LA area is I think, more than even in the past, becoming an array of social enclaves. In part because of racial/cultural splits – this area’s Hispanic, that area’s Asian-but-mostly-Vietnamese, etc – but also because of the sheer physical difficulty of getting from A to B in present-day traffic.

High-speed rail is an attempt by the Dem/union powers to corrupt the Central Valley, to capitalize on the harm that’s been done to agriculture in the region by getting people to latch onto the teat of state-controlled contracting and development.

That said, the SCA 5 mess was a bit of overreach on the part of the progressive/Hispanic industry, pushed along by the blacks. They’ll try again, but first they’ll try to do a little housecleaning in the Dem caucus. Leland Yee’s district – in which I reside – was gerrymandered to be just safe enough for him, but his closest rivals were San Mateo County white-progressives who would have supported this disaster.

Happy Nomad on April 9, 2014 at 2:27 PM

This is changing. While the San Diego area is still largely conservative (well, SD did elect the progressive Filner, so that’s influx), northern Orange County, particularly around Irvine, is becoming more and more LA progressive.

In LA County, once north of the San Fernando Valley, you start entering California’s ‘flyover’ country – which covers most of the Central Valley.

Then once past Sacramento, the state also returns to being more conservative.

LA, the immediate coast, and the Bay Area are the strongholds for the progressive fascists.

Not coincidentally, the areas of the state that are seeing the largest departures of the middle class, are in the traditional conservative areas. They’ve realized that not only has the state gone from being in the top 5 of most positive categories prior to Brown’s first term, to the bottom 5 of all of the states, but that there is little hope of a rebound or even a dead cat bounce.

Just goes to show how stupid(or completely ignorant) California voters are. We didn’t learn from Brown’s first term, when he abolished the death penalty, created the Inmate’s Bill of Rights(cable TV in every prison), introduced the Global Warming Environmental Impact Study for new businesses while he was AG, which had the effect of driving new business out of California, and helped Barbara Boxer turn the screws on the Central Valley water supply.

No one even remembers when California was called The Golden State, anymore. The state is lost. If it doesn’t slide into the sea, it will eventually slide back into Mexico. Which was the goal, all along.

Normally the people react eventually to corruption and mismanagement by throwing the bums out and giving the other party a chance. California has passed the tipping point. They are controlled by the rent-seekers and the super-wealthy tech and Hollywood giants who approve the socialist model.

I spent my first 60 years in Kalifornia. Los Angeles was the best big city in the US in which to grow up, but that was in the 50′s. We had some Republicans in office then, but that was a long time ago. When Kalifornian’s regained their lunacy after RR left the governorship to be Prez, it became a lost cause. A short respite with Deukmejian, and it was all downhill.

So, two businesses and 60 years later, I’m proud to be a Texan and not have to worry about being thrown under the bus by the moochers.

Moon-beam meets moon-state.

It’s obvious that only Democrats and liberals were polled as since I live in CA and know many people who are never called nor polled and who definitely are against Moonbeam being in office ever again since he destroyed Oakland and doing the same thing in this his second term as governor. Falsity in polling has become the norm to protect dissolute and inept Democrats in offices at all levels of legislatures.
