Voters in L.A. County were nearly split on the issue, with 47% saying yes, 46% saying no. Meanwhile in the San Francisco Bay Area, voters overwhelmingly support the prop, voting 53% yes and 38% no. That nearly the opposite in other parts of the state including San Diego (39% yes, 54% no), Northern California (37% yes, 49% no) and Central Valley(36% yes, 54% no).
Non-partisan voters are split on the issue while most Democrats support it and most Republicans do not.
Men barely support it (48% yes, 47% no) while women mostly do not (41% yes, 50% no).
52% of 18 to 29-year-olds support it, but that yes-trend dives overall with age. Most of those young voters who are a yes vote are White non-Hispanic. Ethnic voters of that age range a 52% no and a 45% yes.
Overall, 77% of voters were familiar with Prop 19 (44% yes, 44% no). Of the 23% who did not know about the initiative, they were most likely to vote no on it (32% yes, 61% no).
