A new poll by those fighting against California marijuana legalization suggests that the effort, Proposition 64, is against the ropes.
What’s worse, the survey takers say that when likely voters are exposed to the anti-64 argument that the initiative would open the door to marijuana ads on TV, 52 percent said they’d likely or definitely vote it down.
Other scary numbers: Nearly 61 percent of the likely Golden State voters who are 75-and-up would say no to 64. Nearly 80 percent of the 18 to 34 crowd would approve 64, also known as the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, but they’re much less likely to actually vote.
“Support” for the proposition “is very soft,” pollsters said in a memo.
However, even the anti-pot pollsters admit that their data show overall support for 64 at 56 percent, which is a passing grade.
Other polls of likely California voters put support for legalization at 60 percent. There’s one way you can affect the outcome: Vote.
