Exit polls: California like Schwarzenegger, not Bush
(CNN) -- Arnold Schwarzenegger still rules California -- no thanks to President Bush, his fellow Republican -- according to exit polls.

Sixty-three percent of Golden State voters approved of the governor -- who CNN projects will win re-election. This is in sharp contrast to Bush, who had only a 39 percent job approval. The war in Iraq is even more unpopular in California, with 63 percent disapproving.

CNN projects Schwarzenegger will defeat Democratic challenger Phil Angelides to keep his seat.

That said, Schwarzenegger still picked up 31 percent of the votes among those who disapprove of Bush -- and 32 percent support from those who disapprove of the Iraq war.

The governor ran particularly well among self-identified independents and moderates, winning a majority of votes from both.
