California Proposition 32 “Paycheck Protection” Passing 53% Vs. 37% in latest CBRT Pepperdine Poll


California Proposition 32, the “Paycheck Protection” Initiative is handily winning in the latest CBRT Pepperdine poll.

The poll found support for Proposition 30 holding steady, a slight drop in support for Proposition 32. “This poll shows that as the opposition to Proposition 32 begins its statewide campaign, the measure has lost some support,” said Dr. Michael Shires, Pepperdine University. “It seems some of the messages in the advertisements are sticking with voters. However, the ‘yes’ campaign is yet to launch their campaign which should impact the measure’s support.”

The election advertising deluge is just starting, but most Californians probably don’t like the idea of their paychecks being held hostage to their unions.

Now, whether the public employee and other unions can persuade their members and others to support forced withdrawals when given the choice is another story.

I say that employees should be given a choice over their own paychecks and say YES on California Proposition 32.
