Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is hitting strong headwinds in his gubernatorial bid - even in his home base, according to poll results reported by the San Francisco Chronicle today.

A poll conducted from Aug. 15 to 18 by David Binder Research found Newsom trailed Attorney General Jerry Brown by 17 percentage points among San Francisco respondents who had made up their minds in the race or were leaning toward a candidate in the race, the poll found. Brown won 51 percent of respondents' support in San Francisco, while Newsom won 34 percent, according to the poll of 423 likely Democratic voters.

Brown hasn't yet declared his candidacy but is widely expected to do so. Various polls have shown Brown leading Newsom among Democratic voters statewide.
