Contra Costa Times

With Election Day less than two weeks away, a once-popular ballot measure that would allow the state’s insurance commissioner to reject rate hikes proposed by health insurers appears to be headed toward defeat, a new poll shows.

Support for Proposition 45 has declined dramatically since September, according to the Public Policy Institute of California survey. Now, only 39 percent of likely voters said they favor the initiative while 46 percent said they planned to vote against it.
