News Panel: Election Results and Analysis

Watch Complete Episode: November 9, 2012 »


Belva Davis will retire after this November 9 broadcast. Say farewell, share well wishes, and relive moments from her storied career.

What does President Obama's win say about the changing electorate, with an estimated 70 percent of the Latino vote helping to deliver key swing states? Does this election signal a tipping point in the influence of voters of color?

It was a win-win for California Democrats this week, securing a supermajority in both houses of the legislature. Voters approved Proposition 30, Gov. Brown's tax measure, which promises to bring in billions in funding for schools.

The effort to curb the use of paycheck deductions for political organizing failed as Proposition 32 was voted down. Proposition 34, a voter's initiative to abolish the death penalty, also failed. The regulation of food remains status quo, as both a statewide measure to require labeling of genetically modified foods and a soda tax in the city of Richmond were rejected by voters.

Guests:

  • Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle
