Brown surges against Whitman in California governor race

By Jill Serjeant
LOS ANGELES | Sun Oct 24, 2010 3:07 pm EDT
(Reuters) - Democrat Jerry Brown has more than doubled his lead over Republican rival Meg Whitman in the California governor's race, gaining support from Latino voters after an illegal immigration furor over the former eBay chief's ex-housekeeper.

A Los Angeles Times/USC poll on Sunday gave Brown, the state's attorney general who first served as California governor from 1975 to 1983, a 13 point lead over Whitman. Brown has 52 percent support, compared to 39 percent for Whitman.

In the same poll a month ago, Brown had a five point overall lead over Whitman. Sunday's survey showed he now has a 36 percentage point lead over Whitman among Latino voters, up from 19 percent in September. Latinos make up one fifth of the California electorate and are seen as pivotal in deciding the governor's race.

The poll also found that with two weeks to go before the November 2 elections, three-term U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer maintains an eight point lead over first-time Republican challenger Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO.
