Poll: Gay marriage ban, parental notification proposition losing

Poll results released by the Public Policy Institute of California indicate low confidence in economy and direction of the state.

A survey taken this month by the non-partisan Public Policy Institute of California indicates close races for key state propositions but strong dissatisfaction of government and little faith in the economy.

Poll results show 46% of likely California voters support Proposition 4 calling for parental notification before a minor could have an abortion. A measure that would allow redistricting of state office lines, Proposition 11, shows support of 41%. Perhaps the most volatile of state measures, Proposition 8, appears likely for defeat with 46% supporting a constitutional ban on gay marriage.

The Institute based its results on the polling of 2,004 English and Spanish speaking Californian residents between October 12th and 19th, and has a +-2% margin of error.

Additional results:

  • 56% of likely voters will cast ballots for the Obama-Biden ticket,  with only 33% going for McCain-Palin, a 23 point deficit.
  • 71% believe California is heading in the wrong direction.
  • 74% forsee California’s economy having “bad times” over the next 12 months.
  • 79% believe California is in a recession (and 39% would call the recession “serious”)
  • 47% responded that they don’t believe the Federal government’s actions to fix the financial crisis have helped.
