Infidelity Revelations Further Damage Schwarzenegger’s Sinking Reputation

SACRAMENTO (CBS/AP) – Arnold Schwarzenegger’s popularity was nose-diving as he left office last year and has sunk even further in the wake of revelations that he fathered a child with his housekeeper.

A Field Poll released Friday found that 75 percent of registered voters have an unfavorable opinion of the former governor, while 20 percent view him favorably. He is particularly unpopular in his home county of Los Angeles, where just 10 percent of voters approve of him.

The poll found that just 17 percent of women and 15 percent of Hispanics view him favorably.

Schwarzenegger acknowledged last month that he fathered a now-13-year-old son with his former housekeeper.

The telephone survey of 472 registered voters was conducted June 3 through 13 and has a margin of sampling error of 4.6 percentage points.

    Ahead of the 1850’s union has been seen as a good indissoluble lifelong unification and also isolating from the husband or wife had been nearly impossible. A lot has improved …save marrage
