Well, Prop 19 seems to have gone down to defeat bigtime. But what about the polls that showed the odds almost even?
Perhaps the Broadus Effect was responsible…that odd factor that makes people answer telephone polls differently than the way they vote. It seems that people talk to pollsters in terms of what they think the pollster wants to hear (in some well-meaning effort to “help” the person on the phone, or to appear more “hip”). That might explain why the polls showed Prop 19 doing a lot better than the actual vote (about 60% against at this time).
Shit, in any case.
