    about the politics of the backing of prop 38:

    Pollsters and political experts are starting to all but write off Proposition 38, the income tax hike measure on the November ballot, putting the focus on whether the campaign's wealthy backer will now set her sights on defeating Gov. Jerry Brown's competing measure.....

    With Proposition 38 struggling, observers are waiting to see if Munger, who has already contributed nearly $30 million toward her campaign, will shift strategies.

    Will she continue to funnel millions of dollars into her campaign, or will she instead start spending huge money on attack ads to defeat Brown's measure? Or will she simply throw in the towel and back Proposition 30 over her measure?

      right to the end, but she won't attack Prop 30 or Gov Brown. Munger is a very active Democrat. There is a month to go and the Prop 38 ads are very good. However the outlook isn't good for 38, polling just under 40% and even isn't so good for Prop 30, currently polling at just over 50%. Historically tax increases need to poll about 65% heading into an election to achieve a majority at the ballot box.
