LOS ANGELES (AP) — The governor's race in California looks like a one-man show.

That's according to a poll Wednesday that found Gov. Jerry Brown 37 percentage points ahead of his nearest rival in a hypothetical matchup.

With the June 3 primary election about two months away, the Public Policy Institute of California's survey found Brown's Republican rivals have made little impression on voters.

State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, of Twin Peaks, pulled 10 percent when respondents were asked about choices in the race.

Former U.S. Treasury official Neel Kashkari, of Laguna Beach, notched just 2 percent.

Brown grabbed 47 percent.

About one in three voters remains undecided.

The Democratic governor is coasting toward a fourth term, even though just a slim majority of likely voters approves of the job he is doing.
