registered voters. it shows jerry brown with a 49 to 39% lead over meg whitman. that's a bit surprising because last month it showed the two in a virtual tie. the survey was done over a 12-day span. it shows brown is leading in all categories in gender and race over the former e-bay ceo. the lead may even be widening since the survey was completed before meg whitman's appearance on tuesday where she was booed by the audience for not committing to end negative campaign ads. analysts believe those negative ads is a big reason why brown is gaining momentum. abc 7's political analyst said whitman should have gone positive at the conference and should go positive now. that's what campaigns usually do in the final days. >> that's standard play out of a play book which is start positive, go negative and come back positive. it was likely that both campaigns were headed in a
positive direction anyway. it wouldn't be much to say that's where we're gonna go. >> just this week whitman's ads seemed to be taking a more positive tone. her campaign insists the race remains tighter than the polls show. both hit the campaign trail running in had the final days. brown will hit 12 cities before election days. reporting live in the news rom, jenelle wang, abc 7 news. >> it's 5:06. a new foreclosure report out today shows the foreclosure prices spreading. many large cities previously not previously affected are now seeing a jump in foreclosure rates. chicago and seattle saw a sharp increase between july and september. the cities have shouldered the worst of the housing downturn until now. california, arizona, nevada are hot beds. las vegas the list of cities with the highest foreclosure

explosion and fire in san bruno. the commission had ordered pressure along that pipeline lowered by 20% after the blast to cut the risk of another pipeline disaster. however, unless pressure is returned to normal, there may be problems meeting winter gas demands in san francisco and along the peninsula. the state puc recently hired consultants to investigate the safety of raising pressure back on the affected pipelines. meanwhile pg&e says it will not rebuild a portion of pipeline that exploded in san bruno. the blast killed eight and destroyed 37 homes. pg&e met with san bruno's mayor and state senator to begin the process of finding alternate locations for the pipeline. >> this morning north bay residents are planning to demonstrate in front of pg&e's installation yard to protest against smart meters. the demonstrators want the public utilities commission to stop the smart meters program because they're concerned about possible health issues. yesterday an advocacy group

yesterday. as we head over, precipitation to san francisco. temperatures in the north bay upper 50s to low 60s, the rest of us mid to upper 60s. but during the afternoon how weres, the shield stays right there which means we could have light drizzle at the game. for all the things you're looking at around, pretty quiet and temperatures running in the upper 60s to low 70s except the north bay. let's take a look at the giants' forecast. we'll head to at&t park and still keep drizzle in the forecast, very light. i don't think it will have much of an affect on the game. 4:57 first pitch. it will be cooler than yesterday's game. let's hope the bats don't follow suit, they stay hot. the heaviest rain will fall tonight, should say friday through saturday morning and saturday into sunday increasing sunshine and warmer weather sunday through tuesday. good morning, frances. >> good morning, mike. it has been exceptionally quiet on the roads and might be
because people are taking some time off. interstate 80 in berkeley, no accidents all around the bay area. the drive time is 19 minutes from the carquinez bridge to the maze. but this will get pretty crowded later on as a lot of folks head to the game for the first pitch at 4:57. here's some alternate routes. you may want to consider the oakland ferry and then leaves alameda main street at 3:20. takes you right to the game. also the golden gate locksford ferry. you need special tickets which you can buy on their website. and the vallejo ferry which departs at 2:30 this afternoon. so several ways to get there. many ways but mass transit a great way to go. eric, kristen. >> frances, thanks a lot. all ways lead to the giants. >> how an east bay high school is changing homecoming rules a
