More than half of California voters say the country's on the wrong track, but according to a new Field Poll, they aren't blaming President Obama.   The poll says 58 percent have a positive view of the President and almost the same number plan to vote for him. 

Obama has an 18 point lead over Republican challenger Mitt Romney.    Mark DiCamillo with the Field Poll says the disparity will likely limit any campaign ads in California.

DICAMILLO:  "To do something in California, you have to do it in a fairly big way to make an impact.  It's likely that both campaigns will look at this and probably say that money is better spent elsewhere."

Romney does lead the President in Central Valley voters and in senior citizens, but 60 percent of Republicans statewide say they're voting against Obama more than they're voting for Romney.
