Propositions 76 and 77 (spending restrictions and redistricting reform) are losing even in some heavily Republican precincts.
Propositions 73 and 74 (parental notification and tenure reform) are narrowly ahead, but with nothing counted in LA and San Francisco that spells doom. Prop. 75, requiring public employee unions to get their members’ consent when they use union dues for political contributions, is only doing a little better; passage is possible but unlikely.
Putting these issues on the ballot all together, rather than focusing attention on one or two, was a huge blunder on the part of Arnold & Co.
