Governor Jerry Brown has a strong approval rating in a recent voter poll, but that doesn't mean the governor can get votes if he runs again.

Over half of the people who took part in a new USC Dornsife/L.A. Times survey say Gov. Brown is doing a good job in office.

But when those same people were asked if they would vote for Brown should he run again, only 32 percent said they would.

Brown's proudest achievement seems to be eliminating the state deficit -- an it isn't impressing voters much.

Thirty-eight percent say they approve of the governor's financial policies, but 47 percent say they disapprove.

The Legislature gets more credit for the improving state economy than Gov. Brown.
