California voters torn over 'change'

Jan. 27, 2008 at 3:20 PM

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 27 (UPI) -- California voters are seen by analysts as torn between the campaign themes of "change" and "experience" in the looming state primary.

Field Poll Director Mark DiCamillo told the San Jose Mercury-News Sunday that California voters appear to be zeroing in on the "change" theme represented by Barrack Obama and Mitt Romney after long supporting the more-established Hillary Clinton and John McCain.

"Voters are starting to fill in the blanks," DiCamillo said. "They want to know, 'How are you going to change things?' and 'What are you going to do with your experience?'"

The Mercury-News said northern California voters indicated that while change is appealing, they are tending to lean on experience, as well.

At the same time, analysts believe the war in Iraq will have a significant influence on many voters.
