Posted by Tanstaafl - Schwarzenegger for president? Not so fast, poll finds - Aug. 27, 2003: "The national poll found that 42 percent of all Americans -- not just Californians -- would vote for Schwarzenegger as governor in their state -- not enough to win but a hefty chunk of votes for a political newcomer. "

Why isn't that enough to win? Gubenatorial contests often have three candidates. If a third-party candidate won 20% (tough, but not out of the realm of possibility considering Jesse Ventura won in Minesota) of the vote and Arnold won 42% as the poll suggests, the there would only be 38% left for his main opponent. Stranger things have happened.
