Young Democrats and those who sat out the 2002 Gubernatorial election will be among the sought-after voters for state Treasurer Phil Angelides…  His campaign advisers say Decline to State voters are also key players, despite a recent P-P-I-C poll that says independents favor Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger 43-percent to 25 percent.   Angelides political consultant Bill Carrick says there are indications that group will vote with Democrats. 
“They’re closer to Democrats than they are to Republicans. So I think what you see…them more inclined to supporting a Democratic candidate than a Republican candidate…”
Democrats say they’ll rely on some party stars to stump for Angelides—following visits by Senator Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton.  The most recent P-P-I-C poll shows likely voters favor Schwarzenegger 43-percent to Angelides at 30 percent.
