A current ballot from the UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Research, co-sponsored by The Instances, discovered that possible voters in California who’ve seen quite a lot of adverts in regards to the Propositions 26 and 27 have been extra against the measures than those that had not seen any adverts. Supporters of each poll measures have aired a barrage of destructive adverts attacking the competing proposition.
“I believe it’s the destructive commercials which have type of been turning voters away,” stated Berkeley IGS ballot director Mark DiCamillo. “Individuals who haven’t seen the adverts are about evenly divided, however individuals who’ve seen quite a lot of adverts are in opposition to it. So, the promoting isn’t serving to.”
And that’s dangerous information for each poll measures. The ballot discovered that Proposition 26 earned solely 31% help from possible voters, in contrast with 42% opposed, in line with the Berkeley survey of 6,939 possible California voters. Proposition 27 fared even worse — 27% of possible voters in help and 53% opposed.
