Political activists in California launched a statewide effort this Saturday to get voters to the polls for the election this November 6th including some locations in the Los Angeles area. A dual purpose rally in support of Proposition 30 planned by the California Democratic Party was held at 1 p.m. at its office in Boyle Heights in support of Governor Jerry Brown's tax measure and to defeat Proposition 32, coined as the anti-union proposition.
California Calls also launched a massive effort Saturday whose goal is to contact 300,000 registered voters and get 200,000 people to vote who usually abstain - and with good reason. A poll performed by USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times discovered aside from Californian voter pessimism, that despite Obama's sizable lead over , he is unlikely to repeat his historic 2008 margin of victory in California because of his diminished power to pull in people who don't traditionally support Democrats.
