With new poll numbers showing him in the lead to replace Governor Davis, Arnold Schwarzenegger is cranking up his campaign as it enters the final week. He told enthusiastic crowds yesterday, “This is war.”
A CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll shows 63 percent of probable voters say theyÂ´ll vote “yes” on the recall.
Republican Schwarzenegger is the top choice as a replacement, with 40 percent support in the poll. Democratic Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante trailed with 25 percent.
DavisÂ´ campaign attacked the poll numbers, saying they are “so far” from what every other poll has shown.
Schwarzenegger says the election is now down to “hand-to-hand combat.”
