SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A new poll shows Gov. Jerry Brown with a 19-point lead over Republican challenger Neel Kashkari in his bid for a fourth term.

The Public Policy Institute of California poll released Wednesday comes a month after the candidates advanced from the primary.

The survey shows Brown with support from 52 percent of likely voters and Kashkari with 33 percent. The remaining 15 percent are undecided or do not plan to vote.

Kashkari is a banker and former U.S. Treasury official who helped oversee the federal bank bailout during the recession. He faces tough odds against an incumbent who has raised at least $21 million.

The poll surveyed 984 likely voters from July 8-15 and has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.
