LOS ANGELES, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- Despite his declining popularity in the nation, U.S. President Barack Obama remains popular in the state of California, according to a new poll published on Sunday.

When respondents were asked "Do you approve or disapprove of the job being done by Obama as president of the United States," 54 percent of likely voters in general said they approved, and 40 percent said they disapproved, according to the poll conducted by The Los Angeles Times and the University of Southern California.

Among whites, the breakdown was 52 percent to 41 percent; among Latinos, it was 64 percent to 28 percent.

Among likely voters, 60 percent said they had a generally favorable impression of the president.

This view could play a role in the Senate race between Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer and Republican Carly Fiorina, both from California, according to a full analysis of the poll by Times political editor Cathleen Decker.

Among likely voters, 56 percent wanted Obama to be supported, and only 34 percent wanted a senator who would be an opponent, according to the poll.

The poll was conducted Sept. 15-22. More than 1,500 California voters were surveyed, among them 887 likely voters. The margin of error for the likely voter sample was 3.3 points in either direction.
