Public Polling: On Thursday, the Los Angeles Times released the results of a phone survey of 1500 Californians, showing that Prop 37 is in a statistical dead heat at 44%Yes, 42%No among likely voters. While the Times asked a concept question that typically favors the “Yes” side (as opposed to reading the ballot label that voters are voting on), it is another indication that this race will be very close and we need to do everything possible to get out the vote and educate voters in the final week of the election.
Advertising : We continued our heavy television, radio, and online advertising campaign. We plan new ads for the final 10 days of the campaign. Please visit our online media center at www.noprop37.com/media/videos/ for the latest ads.
• Yes on 37 launched a new television ad starting today, with a moderate-sized buy scheduled to air in major markets through election day. The Yes side claims they have approximately $3 million for final television and radio ads.
• Yes on 37 continues to appeal to new donors, claiming if they can raise an additional $2 million they can increase their ad buy to levels they believe are sufficient to pass Prop 37.
• We received three new No on 37 editorials this week, including from the Chico Enterprise Record, Investor Business Daily and the Stockton Record. In addition, the San Diego Union Tribune ran a 2nd No on 37 editorial, calling the measure a ‘scam’. Our No on 37 editorial count is up to 41 daily newspapers urging No on 37.
• Media activity has definitely increased and will continue through election day. We have had dozens of radio and television debates, as well as online debates moderated by the newspapers, that will continue for the next week. Attached are the past week’s media clips. You can review all the No on 37 editorials and other favorable news clips at http://www.noprop37.com/media/news/
