Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Hated Throughout California, But Loathed in Los Angeles
Just 20% of California voters approve of Schwarzenegger, while 75% disapprove. The loathing is especially strong in Los Angeles, where just 10% support Schwarzenegger and a whopping 84% do not.
Guess we're not France after all.
The explanation seems to be that L.A. County has a lot of Latinos and a lot of Democrats -- and both of those groups are more likely to despise the ex-governor than the rest of the population.
Just 15% of Latinos now hold a favorable view of Schwarzenegger -- which just proves again that mistreating the help is not a great way to win Latino support -- while 14% of Democrats support him.
Women are more hostile to Schwarzenegger than men -- no surprise there -- and older folks are more hostile than younger. Conservatives also hate Schwarzenegger, though not as much as liberals.
At this point, the prototypical Schwarzenegger supporter is a young, white, single guy who lives in San Francisco, has no fixed political views and dreams of someday having a lovechild of his own. Brah!
