Despite the "whore" controversy, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown is leading Republican opponent Meg Whitman by 6 points, according to the latest poll from Rasmussen.

"The numbers: Brown 50%, Whitman 44%. likely voters has a ±4% margin of error," explained TPM. "In the previous Rasmussen poll from two weeks ago, Brown led by a nearly-identical margin of 49%-44%." In late August, Brown was at 40% and Whitman at 48%.

TPM has been keeping a scorecard by averaging most all polls, whether Rasmussen, Field, LA Times, etc., about the race. The average of all them combined has Brown at 47.1% and Whitman at 43.9%.
