“This administration is populated by people who’ve spent their careers bashing government. They’re not just small-government conservatives—they’re Grover Norquist, strangle-it-in-the-bathtub conservatives. It’s a cognitive disconnect for them to be able to do something well in an arena that they have so derided and reviled all these years.”

Senator Hillary Clinton

It will be interesting to see which polls are right: the Governor's internal polls, which claim to show three of his big four initiatives passing, or the latest numbers from the Public Policy Institute of California, which show most all of them going down in defeat. Here's the numbers:
Prop 73 (parental notification for abortions)
Yes 42
No 48
Undecided 10

Prop 74 (Teacher tenure)
Yes 46
No 48
Undecided 6

Prop 75 (Union dues)
Yes 46
No 46
Undecided 8

Prop 76 (State budget, education funding)
Yes 30
No 62
Undecided 8

Prop 77 (Redistricting)
Yes 36
No 50
Undecided 14

Arnold insiders claim that their numbers show only prop 76 failing. As I've said before, with numbers this close, turnout will be the key. And I still hope that numbers this close will urge those who oppose Arnold's initiatives to get out and do what's right when they vote Nov 8th.
