SACRAMENTO -- Most California voters say they approve of the job Jerry Brown is doing as governor, according to a new survey.

The poll from the Public Policy Institute of California found 54% of the state’s likely voters give Brown positive marks for his work as the state’s chief executive.

The assessment of Brown’s job approval is similar to that of a recent Field Poll, which found 51% of voters giving Brown positive reviews. But that survey also revealed just 43% of state voters said they would back Brown’s reelection.

Brown has not publicly decided whether to seek an unprecedented fourth term as California governor. Campaign reports filed on Tuesday show Brown has more than $10 million in the bank for a campaign should he decide to run.

Just one-third of California voters say they approve of the job done by the state Legislature, the PPIC survey found.
