Vince Vasquez of the NUSIPR said Democratic and Republican leaders would have to endorse the project, and a ``yes'' campaign would have to quickly identify and appeal to skeptical voters.
Vasquez reached his conclusions by taking the lessons of the successful 1998 measure on Petco Park, and applying current voter demographic and registration data. He also assumed that the financing plan would require a 55 percent ``yes'' vote since a tax hike requiring a two-thirds majority has been ruled out by a task force studying the issue.
