The article claims that the measure to authorize $750 million of general-obligation bonds for children's hospitals by California government has a relatively narrow lead among voters. Proposition 61, which will appear on the November 2 ballot had a 46% to 35% lead in the poll, which surveyed 549 likely voters in late September. The poll was taken before Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's announcement that he opposed Proposition 61 and two other non-bond related health care ballot measures. Susan Maddox, the president of the California Children's Hospital Association said the organization has not run ads for the bond measure yet because it is saving its resources for an ad blitz starting next week.
