A survey released Thursday by the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California found that the strong Democratic tilt of the California electorate was responsible for the defeat of Proposition 4, a measure that would have required parental notification of minors seeking an abortion. According to the survey, 66% of Republicans supported the measure, while 65% of Democrats opposed it.
