Statement on Berkeley IGS Poll Showing Prop 10 Losing 35-60 Percent, October 31, 2018

SACRAMENTO – The No on Prop 10 campaign, Californians for Responsible Housing, issued the following statement on the Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies (IGS) showing Proposition 10 trailing by a 35-60 percent margin:

“This poll mirrors public and private polling that shows voters clearly understand that Prop 10 is a flawed measure that would worsen California’s affordable housing crisis, reducing property values and freezing the construction of housing for low- and middle-income families that we desperately need. Instead of focusing on real solutions to boost the availability and affordability of housing in our state, anti-housing advocate Michael Weinstein and the AIDS Healthcare Foundation has squandered more than $23 million on this measure that will not result in a single new unit of housing or help the homeless.” – Steven Maviglio, No on Prop 10 spokesperson.

The poll was completed online among 1,339 likely voters in California October 19-25, 2018 in English and Spanish. It mirrors a poll released by the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) that showed Proposition 10 failing by a 25-60 percent margin.
