TWO NEW POLLS SHOW PROPOSITION 30 LEADING HEADING INTO ELECTION DAY

Despite Billionaires Pumping Millions into Dishonest No Campaign, Clean Air Measure Leads
SACRAMENTO – With election day looming, two independent polls released today show Proposition 30, the Clean Air and Clean Cars Act, headed toward approval by California voters.

The USC Schwarzenegger Institute poll shows Prop 30 ahead 53% to 47%. The poll was conducted October 30 to November 2, 2022.

The Berkeley IGS poll shows the Proposition winning by a 47% to 41% margin with 12% undecided. The poll was conducted October 25 to October 31, 2022.

The two polls confirm Proposition 30’s lead despite opponents outspending proponents by a significant margin on inaccurate paid media during the period of polling. A record 32 billionaires have contributed to the No campaign, which is backed by the California Republican Party. Journalists from KQED, CalMatters, and the Sacramento Bee have fact-checked the No campaign’s ads and found them misleading.

“Despite billionaires spending wildly to defeat a measure to clean up our air and guarantee climate action and adequate resources to reduce wildfires, Proposition 30 continues to lead in these polls,” said Bill Magavern, Policy Director at the Coalition for Clean Air. “With the get out the vote efforts of the California Democratic Party and our strong coalition, we have the momentum to win on Election Day.”

Proposition 30 is endorsed by the California Democratic Party, CAL FIRE firefighters, the American Lung Association, IBEW, UAW, the Union of Concerned Scientists and other labor, health, consumer groups as well as dozens of Democratic elected officials throughout the state.
