Prop 102 Exit Polling

Jim Burroway

November 5th, 2008

Here are some figures I found interesting from CNN’s exit polling on Prop 102:

Women were more supportive than men:
Men: Yes: 57%; No: 43%
Women: Yes 55%; No: 45%

The youth vote was in our camp, which bodes well for the future:
Age 18-29 Yes: 48%; No: 52%

The political party divide was stark in a state that McCain carried for President:
Democrat: Yes: 35%; No: 65%
Republican: Yes: 81%; No: 19%

The Catholic vote was surprisingly close:
Catholics: Yes: 51%; No: 49%

Also opposition to Prop 102 increased with education and income. Truly the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. The young, the less economically vulnerable, and the better educated were all less fearful.
