The Los Angeles Business Journal asked readers "Will Jerry Brown be a better governor than Arnold Schwarzenegger?" The answer was a resounding "YES" with a strong hint of "who really knows given how jacked up our state is at the moment."

Here are the poll results:
48% YES
31% NO

The journal singles out a particular poll comment as representative of a growing sentiment: "Brown will be tougher. However, a good many Californians won't like what he has to do in order to pull us out of the quagmire. It's our own fault."

Do you think Brown's tough love will help or hurt California and programs in Los Angeles?
