SAN DIEGO – A new tracking poll exactly one week before the general election shows that California voters are strongly in favor of Propositions 63 and 64, which would add new gun regulations and legalize marijuana in the state. 

The 10News poll released Tuesday found that Proposition 63, which would require background checks on ammunition purchases and outlaw large-capacity magazines, was leading by a margin of 62 to 31 percent among respondents. 
Proposition 64, which would legalize recreational marijuana in California, was favored by 54 to 39 percent of respondents, with 6 percent undecided. 
When asked who they would vote if the presidential election were held today, 56 percent of respondents chose Hillary Clinton, 35 percent chose Donald Trump, 4 percent went with Gary Johnson and 1 percent chose Jill Stein. 4 percent of voters said they were still undecided.
