California Politics Podcast: Polls on propositions, new accusations in Silicon Valley congressional race

The last few days have seen the release of an enormous amount of polling data on some of the most high-profile state propositions this election season. And in many cases, the early reviews from voters are good.

On this week's podcast episode, we take a closer look at the polling data and the race still to come on proposals to legalize marijuana, raise taxes and more.

We also discuss how a prominent interest group has pulled its endorsement of Democratic legislators. And finally, we look at new accusations in a Democrat versus Democrat congressional race in Silicon Valley.

I'm joined by Marisa Lagos of KQED News. You can subscribe to the free podcast on iTunes, Soundcloud and a number of other other podcast apps.
