Cal State Fullerton’s Center for Public Policy has just released an independent poll of Orange County residents. More than 600 respondents weighed in on the gubernatorial and Senate races, props on pot and global warming, as well as issues regarding crime, drugs and party identification. Turns out, there are some surprises behind that orange curtain. We’ll take a look at the results, which promise to give interesting insights into an important and changing county in the middle of a tightly contested statewide election. Is Orange County moving from red to blue? Or are the demographic changes more complex than that? AirTalk takes the OC’s political pulse.
