Poll: Brown's tax initiative slips below majority

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - California's undecided voters will determine the fate of Gov. Jerry Brown's tax initiative as the latest public opinion survey shows support slipping below the majority needed for passage.

The Field Poll released Thursday found support for Brown's Proposition 30 at 48 percent while 38 percent say they oppose the initiative. Another 14 percent remain undecided.

The poll also surveyed Proposition 38. The competing tax initiative trails, with 34 percent in favor compared to 49 percent against.

Field Poll Director Mark DiCamillo says Brown still has a chance of passing Proposition 30 if he can sway some of the undecided voters and turn out supporters.

Field surveyed 1,566 registered voters by telephone from Oct. 17-30. The poll has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
