A voter places her ballot into a ballot box during California's midterm elections in Los Angeles, California on November 2, 2010.

Proposition 32, the controversial California ballot measure that deals with union and corporate campaign contributions, is trailing by a wide margin. 

A new Field Poll out Friday has the measure trailing by 16 points.

Prop 32 is far and away the most expensive fight on California’s November ballot – with more than $120 million spent by the two sides combined.  The measure would ban corporate and union campaign contributions and ban automatic paycheck deductions for political purposes.

Support for Prop 32 dropped four points from last month’s poll to just 34 percent.  Half of likely voters say they oppose it.
