The latest Field Poll on nine potential Gubernatorial candidates for the 2010 race includes LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. The poll asked registered voters in California about their impressions of the possible state leaders. "U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein is the best known and most favorably viewed among registered Democrats," the SacBee says, also finding that "on the Republican side, former eBay CEO Meg Whitman draws no opinion from more than two-thirds of GOP voters." For Villaraigosa, it's a tie: about a third of people find him favorable, another third find him unfavorable and the remaining have no opinion (interesting: high unfavorable rankings from those who are married). He says he's not running for Governor.
