Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom is still leading the pack among likely voters in next year's governor's race -- but a full one-third of them say they still haven't made up their minds.
The findings come in a poll of 1,200 registered voters, conducted by UC Berkeley's Institute for Government Studies between August 27 and September 5. The survey has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
Support for Newsom, a former San Francisco mayor and a Democrat, has consistently hovered around 25 percent this year, according to the pollsters.
His closest Democratic rival, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, is still trailing Newsom and lost some ground since IGS' last survey in May. Ten percent of likely voters say they’ll support the Southern California politician, who has been staking out a more moderate position, to the right of Newsom, as he campaigns around the state focused largely on how many areas of California have been left out of the surging economic gains felt along the coast.
The two Republicans in the race -- businessman John Cox and Assemblyman Travis Allen -- are also garnering around 10 percent support.
