SACRAMENTO (AP) — A new Field Poll finds that 51 percent of California voters say they approve of the job Gov. Jerry Brown is doing and that most are inclined to re-elect him next year.

The survey released Wednesday shows the Democratic governor’s popularity dipped from his 57 percent approval rating last February.

About 43 percent said they are inclined to support Brown if he seeks re-election next year, as expected.

The poll found that men are more likely to support Brown, while women are divided.

It was based on telephone interviews with 846 registered voters from June 26 to July 21 and has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
