Attorney General Jerry Brown has pulled 8 points ahead of former eBay CEO Meg Whitman in the California governor’s race, according to the Public Policy Institute of California’s latest poll.

The survey, completed Sunday and made public Wednesday night, showed U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer with a narrower lead of 5 points over her Republican challenger, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.

The survey also showed trouble for several propositions, including Proposition 19, which would legalize marijuana, and Proposition 23, which would suspend the state’s anti-global warming law until the economy improves. Full article
