California miscellaneous polling (http://publicpolicypolling.blogspot.com/2011/02/california-miscellaneous.html)

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">-In 2003 Californians recalled Gray Davis and elected Arnold Schwarzenegger. Now they say oops. 42% of voters in the state say that Davis was the superior Governor to only 32% who remain in Schwarzenegger's camp. Democrats, at 56%, are a lot more sold on Davis having better than Republicans, at 48%, are on Schwarzenegger. Beyond that independents go for Davis by a 40/33 margin as well. It would be hard to claim that Davis is a popular figure at this point- but he's certainly not as disliked as Schwarzenegger and his 25/65 favorability rating is. </div></div>

I'm not sure this is particularly valid. Davis has been out for a good while, and absence makes the heart grow fonder (for out of office politicians anyway). Arnold is a very recent office-holder, and the people haven't had time for memories of his great work to dim.

They both got Kalifornicated by the lib voters and the Union. Arnold tried to proffer conservative legislation and got spanked.

Gray Davis? Who is he? Ohhh...he's OK cuz he's not Arnold.
"Schwarzenegger's early victories included repealing an unpopular increase in the vehicle registration fee as well as preventing driver's licenses being given out to illegal immigrants, but later he began to feel the backlash when powerful state unions began to oppose his various initiatives. Key among his reckoning with political realities was a special election he called in November 2005, in which four ballot measures he sponsored were defeated. Schwarzenegger accepted personal responsibility for the defeats and vowed to continue to seek consensus for the people of California. He would later comment that "no one could win if the opposition raised 160 million dollars to defeat you"."
He made a hard left after that.

Prove it. What socialist policies did he enact?

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Governor Schwarzenegger played a significant role in <span style='font-size: 14pt'>opposing Proposition 66, a proposed amendment of the Californian Three Strikes Law, </span>in November 2004.

Yeah, sounds like a Lefty.

ROFL! Actually, that's the sine qua non position for statewide office in California, and has been for some time now.
