Contributing sentiments towards policy:

47% : Dahle has advocated increasing funding to local law enforcement, according to CalMatters, and weakening Proposition 47, which reduced punishments for some property and drug crimes.
42% : Throughout his campaign, however, Dahle has not exactly been vocal about his position on abortion -- perhaps an acknowledgment of California's overwhelming approval of abortion rights.
40% : Dahle calls himself "pro-life" and voted against putting Proposition 1 before voters to make abortion a constitutional right in California, which Newsom has championed.
