Why Prop 19 Lost: Apathy, Cash, Fear, Loathing

Prop 19 lost 46-54 Tuesday by around a half a million votes, and those lack of votes can be attributed to: youth voter apathy, funding problems, and a powerful attack from the front and the rear, among other factors. An exit poll done by Edison Research of 2,200 precincts Tuesday found just 10 percent of voters considered Prop 19 their number one issue. Paid for by the Los Angeles Times, the Edison poll showed half of voters thought the governor’s race was the main event. Even among young voters, Prop 19 came in third in importance.
