A USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll found that 72 percent of California voters were in favor of changing the immigration system to include a path to citizenship, while 21 percent were opposed to such a policy.The USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll, conducted March 11-17, offered insight into three pertinent issues regarding education, gun control and immigration. The full sample included 1,501 registered California voters, and the poll results had a 2.9 percent margin of error. The poll was conducted with Republican polling firm American Viewpoint and Democratic polling firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research.In a video posted on the poll’s website, Dan Schnur, the poll’s director, said that despite disagreements between Congressional Republicans and Democrats, voters seek change to current immigration policies.“Many Congressional Republicans are opposed to a path to citizenship,” said Schnur, director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics. “Many Congressional Democrats are leery of enhanced order security and a guest-worker program. But California voters understand that each of these elements is essential to a comprehensive immigration reform package.”Voter response to the poll shows that Californians are committed to fixing the immigration system, American Viewpoint polling firm representative Dave Kanevsky said during a conference call on Monday.“There is a consensus that the current immigration system is broken, which is why voters are willing to make major reforms and not just tinker around the edges,” Kanevsky said.The poll also showed overwhelming support for stricter gun control laws.Seema Mehta, a political reporter for the L.A. Times, suggested that increased support for California gun control laws stems from a smaller number of individuals owning guns. Four out of five voters support a hypothetical requirement that would enforce background checks on individuals purchasing firearms.Schnur told CBS News that though a federal assault weapons ban might be difficult to pass, such a ban would easily pass in California.“Right down the line, Californians have made it clear how strongly they support the idea of gun control,” Schnur said.The poll also collected public opinion on tax increases in California.According to the poll, when voters were asked if money should go from wealthier schools to more disadvantaged schools, results were divided. Though 67 percent of Latinos backed the proposal, only 42 percent of white voters did.Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research’s Drew Lieberman told the L.A. Times that the results suggest that California Governor Jerry Brown will have to defend Proposition 30’s reallocation of extra funds to disadvantaged students. Prop. 30, an initiative that passed on November’s ballot, raised revenue by increasing income taxes on the wealthy and temporarily increasing California’s sales tax from 7.25 to 7.5 percent.“The challenge for the governor here is to make a case that this is not a divisive issue but a rising-tide-lifts-all-boats proposal,” Lieberman said.Kanevsky told the L.A. Times that he described such extra funding as “class warfare applied to schools,” as it promotes “taking from one and giving to another.”The full report can be found online at the http://dornsife.usc.edu/usc-dornsife-los-angeles-times-poll/. read more
Published on August 31, 2018 at 3:08 pm Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse begins its season Friday at 6 p.m. at Western Michigan. The Broncos are coached by former Syracuse offensive coordinator Tim Lester, who led WMU to the 25th-best scoring offense in the NCAA (33.9 points per game). In two games against Power 5 opponents last year, though, Western Michigan allowed 77 total points.Here’s what our beat writers picked as the outcome of the game.Andrew Graham (0-0)That winning feelingSyracuse 38, Western Michigan 31Familiarity. That’s the word that comes to mind as Syracuse travels to play Western Michigan this weekend. Short of the venue, so much is recognizable for the Orange. Syracuse has established faces at quarterback, running back, the offensive and defensive lines and the secondary. Western Michigan head coach Tim Lester recruited several Syracuse players, including Eric Dungey. Players seem certain they’ll be defending the Broncos zone blocking scheme and outside run game. And, like it always does, the first game will start providing answers to SU’s questions — Who will establish themselves at receiver? And how capable is the new linebacker core? If those answers are positive, turnovers are limited and the injury bug doesn’t hit, the Orange should have enough firepower to outlast the Broncos. Heading into the home opener, Syracuse should hope that winning feeling grows familiar.Matt Liberman (0-0)Taming Broncos Syracuse 28, Western Michigan 21AdvertisementThis is placeholder textRemember two seasons ago when Western Michigan played in the Cotton Bowl and Syracuse finished the season 4-8. The Broncos boasted the 19th-ranked offense in the country en route to an undefeated regular season. Times have changed in Kalamazoo and in Syracuse. That 19th-ranked Broncos offense fell to 78th last season. Meanwhile, Syracuse has improved in the trenches this season, which will likely play an important role in this game. If SU’s offensive line can give Eric Dungey time in the pocket to be the playmaker that he is, Syracuse will likely get the job done on the road. Questions certainly loom for the Orange — at wide receiver and at linebacker — but veteran units on both fronts will propel Syracuse to a win in this game. Tim Lester recruited Dungey, he knows how dangerous the senior quarterback can be.Josh Schafer (0-0)Hot startSyracuse 35, Western Michigan 31If Syracuse is to make a bowl game, which my preseason record indicates, it needs to win games like Western Michigan on the road. That’s not to say this is will be a cake walk for the Orange. Western Michigan and former Syracuse offensive coordinator Tim Lester will plan to run the football. A lot. The bad news for SU fans: WMU ran for 700 more yards than it threw last season. Couple that with a entirely new linebacking core for the Orange and things don’t look great. But the Broncos lost their all-time leading rusher in Jarvion Franklin from a year ago, leaving its running back position a question mark headed into the season. With Syracuse’s emphasis on play count, the Orange can dictate the pace of play. An early lead can limit WMU’s choice in running the football and lead SU to a win. read more

MLB trade rumors: Prospects Yankees, Dodgers, Astros, Braves should move but don’t want to “Throw the ball over the plate,” he said, via NJ.com.Luke Voit took a 92 mph fastball to the chin.

With the amount of power they have they’re going to see a lot of high pitches to keep them from getting their arms extended.

Bettis is certainly one of them as are guys like German Marquez and Jon Gray.And again, sometimes pitches up in the zone just get away. The Yankees though were tired of seeing them near their batters’ heads, and DJ LeMahieu, a former Rockie and a current Yankee, did his best to explain the team’s frustration.“I just think after Luke got hit and then Ro almost got hit twice, it’s a long, hot day, and obviously we don’t want to see that,” he said. “I think that would be the reaction a lot of times.” MLB trade rumors: Unavailable players Dodgers, Phillies, Yankees hope hit open market MLB trade rumors: Padres ‘most serious’ suitor for Trevor Bauer Sometimes pitches get away. There may not have been intent in those pitches, but Boone really doesn’t care if there is any intent or not.”Sometimes intent doesn’t matter,” Boone said.Pitchers don’t throw inside as much as they have in the past but lots of teams still pitch extensively up in the zone. The Astros are a perfect example of that. With the growth in analytics, many organizations are focusing on pitch tunneling which is just like it sounds. Pitchers throw two different pitches on the same plane and try to trick hitters into thinking a fastball is coming when a changeup or breaking ball actually is. Aaron Boone has had an eventful week. First, he went viral after an epic rant got him ejected from a game Thursday, and on Saturday he was calling out the Rockies for high-and-tight fastballs.Yankees first baseman Luke Voit left Saturday’s game after he was hit in the face with a fastball by Chad Bettis in the fourth inning and Austin Romine and Aaron Judge got some chin music as well. Boone was blunt in his assessment of the Rockies’ pitching in New York’s 11-5 win. read more
