My guess is that it may be favored by Hispanics, especially since they seem to have rejected the proposition overwhelmingly (2-1 margin). The measure was essentially passed by whites, against the opposition of the Hispanic vote, with blacks split 50-50. Much the same as 187. It would be interesting to find out what the vote was among Spanish-speaking parents with school-age children, who are, after all, the only ones that will be affected by the measure.
Just a reminder: the proposition was not about preventing people from being forced into bilingual education against their will. I think we all agree this is *bad*. It was about banning bilingual education in any way, shape or form.
