The idea of inmates getting released early from prison doesn't sit well California residents. A new poll that shows there aren't a lot of undecided voters when it comes to crime.
This one's in from the Public Policy Institute of California. Half of people surveyed say they take the issue of crime personally, because they experience it in their own community. 75 percent of respondents said they're very concerned federal judges will let out thousands of inmates early. That fear is rooted in reality. California doesn't have a lot of other options to comply with federal law and ease prison overcrowding.
And apparently, the Public Police Institute figured, while they were at it, they decided to ask people about gay marriage and legal pot smoking. Both are seeing record high approval ratings.
