Twenty-seven percent of people questioned in a Field Poll released Tuesday morning give Schwarzenegger a thumbs-up, the first time in his nearly six years as governor that his approval rating has dropped below 30 percent. The survey also indicates that nearly two out of three voters, 65 percent, disapprove of Schwarzenegger’s performance as California governor…

According to the Field Poll, the only California governor to have a lower approval rating over the past 50 years was Grey Davis in 2003. Davis was re-called from office that year in a special election. Schwarzenegger was elected to replace him, and re-elected three years ago with 56 percent of the vote.
