Hillary Clinton is a big favorite in California but has lost some support after FBI Director James Comey's announcement last week that he might reopen an investigation into her email use while she was secretary of state.
A statewide poll released Tuesday by Southern California News
Group and KABC/7 and conducted by the polling firm Survey-USA, also
shows California voters poised to legalize recreational marijuana, require background checks for the purchase of some ammunition and slap a $2-a-pack tax on cigarettes.
A California proposition to abolish the death penalty is likely to be defeated, the survey found.
The poll also shows state Attorney General Kamala Harris far ahead of Rep. Loretta Sanchez, D-Orange, in the race for U.S. Senate.
