Poll: Californians Flunk Electoral College

A new poll says that a large number of Californians are in favor of dumping the Electoral College system used in the presidential election.

The survey from the Public Policy Institute of California says that sixty-four percent of likely voters say they would back replacing the Electoral College with a popular vote.

The poll from the San Francisco-based, nonpartisan think tank also found that John Kerry continues to hold a substantial lead among California voters over President Bush.

According to the poll, the Kerry-Edwards ticket has the support of 51 percent of likely voters, while Bush-Cheney side has 39 percent.

The Public Policy Institute also found that voters continue to give high marks to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

As he has in other recent polls, Schwarzenegger received strong approval ratings from likely voters, with 69 percent saying they liked his performance.
