This is why I'm voting yes. CA is very wasteful with the money they collect, imho.

Interesting that this poll shows a larger percentage of "yes" votes when news outlets are reporting that it's going to fail. This is why I don't give much credence to polls.

A high-profile initiative to repeal the recent increase to gasoline and diesel taxes continues to lag with likely California voters.

Just 41 percent plan to vote for Proposition 6, according to a new poll from the Public Policy Institute of California, while 48 percent are opposed. That result is similar to a PPIC survey last month, when the measure trailed 39 percent to 52 percent among likely voters.

The small bump in support for Proposition 6, which would reverse the tax increase by requiring voter approval to raise fuel and vehicle license fees, indicates that the yes campaign has a “big hill to climb,” said Mark Baldassare, president and CEO of PPIC. There are less than two weeks left until the election, and mail voters are already starting to return their ballots.

“I don’t see momentum in this poll,” Baldassare said.

Yeah, I don't think any of us will trust polls again in our lifetimes.

I didn't see that one coming. I thought for sure she was going to win. Glad I didn't bet the farm.

The television news reports. They've been saying it doesn't have any strength in passing. I don't know for sure. I'm not arguing with you. You have your finger on the pulse of politics more than me so I'll take your word for it.

I know right? That's how I felt. I did not want Trump to win. I didn't even want him on the ticket but more importantly, I didn't want Clinton in the White House. But I was shocked! I was watching live coverage on youtube (I think) and the states were reporting in and he was winning. I was thinking I was on some bogus joke channel and they were making it up. Fooled me

To assess whether polls have lost their mojo over time, researchers looked at 30,000 voter polls conducted for 351 general elections in 45 nations over a span of 75 years. According to a press release, what they found is that the accuracy of polls have not changed much over the decades and the problematic polls of recent years are in line with historic polling.
