The Sacramento State survey found that 58% approve of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s performance. Sac State Sociology professor Amy Liu conducted the poll.
"A lot of people think he really tried to reform a lot of things. People think he’s flexible, he’s open to different ideas. And another thing I think is his star power, people just like him."
Although Sacramento area residents like the governor’s overall performance, his approval rating slips on specific issues.
The poll found that 56% don’t like the way he handles public education and 54% disapprove of how he’s dealing with health care.
The telephone survey of 12,000 randomly selected households was done from mid-February to early March.
