The poll shows 43 percent of those surveyed certainor leaning toward a "Yes" vote, with 46 percent in the "No" category. A total of 11 percent of those surveyed remained undecided.
The so-called "rainy day fund", requiring the Legislature to set aside one percent of state revenue each year, appears likely to pass. It was favored by a 61-17 margin in the poll.
