Proposition 45 is ahead, according to a new Internet poll by the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. The survey of self-reported, registered voters who said they planned to vote in the Nov. 4 election, had Proposition 45 leading with 41.6% of those queried and opposed by 29.9%. Undecideds were 28.5%. The poll was taken between Oct. 3 and Oct. 17 and had a margin of error of 3.65%. The Hoover numbers are dramatically different from results of a Public Policy Institute of California poll released last week. They had 46% of likely voters opposing Proposition 45 and 39% favoring it, with 15% not sure. The PPIC poll was taken between Oct. 12 and Oct. 19 and had a margin of error of 3.5% according to a recent report in the Los Angeles Times.
