    A new survey by the Field Poll shows Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's public opinion rating has slumped to a new low.
    Results from a survey released Sunday show only 23 percent of the people asked, approve of the job the Scharzenegger is doing.  A whopping 71 percent disapproved.

    Those numbers are statistically equivalent to the all-time record low job appraisal that voters gave to Democrat Gray Davis shortly before he was recalled from office in 2003.

    The Field Poll also found only 13 percent of the voters asked approved of the job the state legislature is doing, while 78 percent disapproved.

    The latest Field Poll was conducted during a telephone survey of 503 registered voters across the state.
