A new poll from the California Business Roundtable and Pepperdine University has been released:
The California Business Roundtableand Pepperdine University School of Public Policy today released the third round of results in their bi-monthly initiative survey series leading up to the November election. This week’s survey shows Proposition 38 receiving a majority of support for the first time and continued strong support for Proposition 39. The survey also found continued support for Propositions 30, 32 and 37.
The entire poll is here.
Here is a summary:
Proposition 30 – TEMPORARY TAXES TO FUND EDUCATION. GUARANTEED LOCAL PUBLIC SAFETY FUNDING. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT.
Proposition 31 – STATE BUDGET. STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT AND STATUTE.
Proposition 32 – POLITICAL CONTRIBUTIONS BY PAYROLL DEDUCTION. CONTRIBUTIONS TO CANDIDATES. INITIATIVE STATUTE.
Proposition 33 – AUTO INSURANCE COMPANIES. PRICES BASED ON DRIVER’S HISTORY OF INSURANCE COVERAGE. INITIATIVE STATUTE.
Proposition 34 – DEATH PENALTY. INITIATIVE STATUTE.
Proposition 35 – HUMAN TRAFFICKING. PENALTIES. INITIATIVE STATUTE.
Proposition 36 – THREE STRIKES LAW. REPEAT FELONY OFFENDERS. PENALTIES. INITIATIVE STATUTE.
Proposition 37 – GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOODS. LABELING. INITIATIVE STATUTE.
Proposition 38 – TAX TO FUND EDUCATION AND EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAMS. INITIATIVE STATUTE.
Proposition 39 – TAX TREATMENT FOR MULTISTATE BUSINESSES. CLEAN ENERGY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY FUNDING. INITIATIVE STATUTE.
Proposition 40 – REDISTRICTING. STATE SENATE DISTRICTS. REFERENDUM.
I am surprised that both tax measures (Jerry Brown’s and Molly Munger’s) are winning approval.
If Californians really think that another round of tax increases will really help the economy, I have a bridge to sell them.
The public employee unions must now be worried about losing their funding sources, re: Proposition 32 winning by over 20 points.
I am pleased that the anti-Death Penalty initiative is failing. But, then again, I cannot ever conceive of California not having the ability to execute its most infamous murderers.
The Three Strikes initiative is probably misunderstood and some strategic campaigning may have to be done to defeat it.
Stay tuned as Labor Day approaches.
