Money's influence on state issues
November 8, 2008 3:06 PM   Subscribe

Are there statistics or studies or articles about money swaying ballot propositions?

In the heat of a CA Prop 8 discussion, someone said "the side with less funding hardly ever wins". I'm willing to believe that's generally true with candidates running for elected office (although links/resources about it would be informative and appreciated), but I want to know if this has been studied on a state-issue level.

Not a direct answer to your question but what I've read the no on prop 8 campaign had more money. The data comes from the California secretary of state.
