Results of CNBC's Winners & Losers of 2010 Poll
California Governor: Dream On
California Governor Candidate: Meg Whitman
This is a complicated one, because it is more about the post than the person. For that reason, we asked you to vote on both the election winner ( Jerry Brown ) and loser (Meg Whitman).
