Latino & Asian Vote Sinking Pot Proposition?

The Field Poll has this election eve report for California, noted in yesterday's News Scan. The ethnic breakdown on Proposition 19, the marijuana legalization initiative, is interesting.

Among white non-Hispanic voters, it's a dead heat, 46-46. The proposition leads among black voters, but only by 5%, 45-40.  But it's getting clobbered among Latino voters, 35-55, and even more so among the three Asian subgroups listed, with 40%+ margins for Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese Americans.  The "other" group, made up largely of Asians not included in the three listed subgroups, is also against by a 43% margin.
