Polls suggest that for Proposition 30 to have a shot, it needs a strong turnout from young voters. USC political analyst Dan Schnur says it's getting help from a campaign against a different ballot measure:
Schnur: "The combined No on 32/Yes on 30 get-out-the-vote effort is probably Governor Brown's best chance of still passing Prop 30."
The "No on 32" campaign has raised more money than "Yes on 30" and has higher intensity among its voters. The state Democratic Party is using that money and enthusiasm to get its most loyal supporters to the polls.Schnur says Democrats appear to have a financial and organizational edge over Republicans. He says the GOP is focusing its more limited resources on competitive congressional races - rather than on driving up statewide turnout.
