Support for Prop 19 statewide in California is apparently less “fringe” than support for the Republican Party.

While President Obama won’t discuss the results of tonight’s brutal election until an afternoon press conference, his Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske already commented on the results of Proposition 19, California’s initiative to legalize marijuana.

Prop 19, California’s ballot initiative to legalize marijuana, is projected to be defeated at the polls today. The results currently show Prop 19 down 56-43 with 20% reporting, but will get much closer as the rest of the state reports. It’s clear though that 2010 is not the year California will legalize marijuana. The Yes on 19 campaign released a statement conceding the election.

Polls are now closed in all states except Hawaii and Alaska. The Democrat loses in the House so far have been huge but Democrats are likely to hold on to the Senate.

I voted! Very excited! Now I am watching the exit polls. I figure we’re gonna just shoot the breeze about whatever tonight. Straw polls, strawmen and women, weed…it’s a free for all. I’ll be happy to swap recipes, tell jokes, and cheer as election results come in.

Voter turn-out means everything right now; don’t hope Prop 19 passes, help it pass by making calls.

Voting Yes on Proposition 19 should be a no-brainer. Laws banning drugs, especially those that are mostly innocuous, are discriminatory. Legalizing marijuana will help save lives, and put a serious dent in the power of the drug cartels and criminal gangs preying on the defenseless.

Proposition 19, which would legalize and regulate production and distribution of marijuana in California, is trailing slightly in the two most recent polls from Field and PPP. While the polling is still relatively close, this is not a good sign. For Prop 19 to pass, there will need to be a very large turnout among supporters and young voters who are not being included in the pollsters’ “likely voter” models.
