5:33 am
today so far than what we saw yesterday. here's a live look starts with a glare across the san mateo bridge. but westbound 92 still looks good probably one of the amber alert signs. everything on the roads is okay towards foster city if you are leaving hayward. a live look across the golden gate bridge bridge. nice flow of traffic. four southbound, two in the northbound direction and this is day two for the new casino opened in rohnert park so we are still expecting tens of thousands of people to hit the roads on 101 traveling towards santa rosa. better news in sunnyvale. that ramp reopened westbound 237 to northbound 101 still a few brake lights but no longer a detour is necessary. that is your latest "kcbs traffic." back to you guys. those luxury wasn't front condos won't change the look of san francisco's waterfront after all. 62% of san francisco voters rejected prop b, 8 washington
5:34 am
development, in yesterday's off year election. they also rejected prop c to allow taller buildings at the same location. our political analyst melissa griffin-caen joins us with more. >> good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> all right. tell us about the waterfront plan in san francisco. what happens? >> you know, i went to it the poll yesterday with christopher at about 6 p.m. and we were voters number 34 and 35 at our polling place. [ laughter ] >> wow. >> so as soon as i saw that i thought, wow, this is really in trouble because what you have here is a dedicated group of folks who are very, very much against the project. and there was really no constituency in favor of the project. and nothing else on the ballot that was going to get people who weren't fired up to the polls. so with this low voter turnout, remember, the director of elections estimated 35% voter turnout ended up being around 22%. basically what you had is only the people who are very much against this project turned out for various reasons related to
5:35 am
the fact that every day we see notices that ellis evictions are up, rents are, people were not inspired to vote for luxury condos and they didn't and it went down in spectacular fashion. >> they spent $40 million of the teachers retirement money to do this as an investment. that fails. what happens next? >> reporter: they all have to go back to the drawing board. they have to look at the money they spent and look at the possibility of sorted of saving as much of this project as they can and moving forward. is it time to cut ties? there is no way they can fix this. they could come back with a shorter version of the development project that fits within the 84-foot requirement and it could be really awful and neighbors would hate that maybe just as much. but they wouldn't have the opportunity to vote on it because it wouldn't require a height exemption so this story is certainly not over. you can bet they are going to circle back together and figure out how they can make this work going forward.
5:36 am
>> let's turn to nationwide elections. amazing. >> reporter: it was very interesting to see everyone on pins and needles watching the virginia governor's race and that one was very close. and actually, if they waited a few more weeks the obamacare rollout was so clunky it started to cause problems for the democratic candidate but the vote happened right at the right time. and democrat terry mcauliffe beat the tea party candidate in ken cuccinelli in a big upset and the direct result of the government shutdown in alabama, we saw the tea party candidate also lose to a more moderate candidate in a republican primary. so not a great day for the tea partiers. everyone is going to be looking to these elections as they determine where they put their money for next year's congressional races in november 2014. >> politics there. we are going to talk about sunnyvale because they passed that gun measure down there. >> reporter: they did. and it's about to go to court. [ laughter ] >> we'll hold to you that. that's coming up at 6:30 and the secession didn't work out too well, either. >> reporter: no, it didn't. >> thank you. remember that you can find more
5:37 am
of melissa's segments on, analysis, right on our website, president obama is heading to texas today to meet with volunteers helping to sign people up for health insurance. at the same time, his top health officials will be in the hot seat again on capitol hill. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius will answer questions about the troubled website. >> we are now more than 30 days into one of the greatest website disasters in history. after nearly $400 million, is synonymous now with failure. >> yesterday, the head of the government agency that administers the website says repairs are already starting to work. marilyn tavenner says the website can now process nearly 17,000 people every hour with almost no errors. some blue shield customers will get to keep their health insurance for a little while
5:38 am
longer. the company is canceling california policies in the wake of the affordable care act but the state insurance commissioner is threatening to sue the company now. the health insurance giant was supposed to give families 180 day cancellation notice but only gave 90 days warning. >> blue shield refused initially to comply with this law so i notified them that i would file a court action to force them to comply. >> blue shield will now send out a correction notice. customers who want to keep their coverage longer need to respond by december 6. happening today, san jose state is slashing classes across the board. students will have fewer options and crowded classes come next semester. as kpix 5's cate caugiran reports, departments were given just hours' notice. cate. >> reporter: yes. this news comes just as students registering for the new spring term. so the future for san jose students and faculty right now is up in the air because what it looks like, it looks like a balancing act at this point.
5:39 am
the department heads were told just last week to slash programs to keep the school afloat and sources say those department leaders are going to meet today at 10:30 to talk about another round of budget cuts to the tune of $16 million. now, for students and faculty this will mean increased class sizes, classes dropped and potential layoffs. in addition, professors may have to teach classes outside their expertise. this news comes as a shock to students and faculty because just last year california voters approved proposition 30 promising relief from budget cuts like these. a university spokesman tells the "san jose mercury news" it's about cutting the school's $32 million deficit and last month it was clear that the school's academic programs were on track to overspend $3.8 million. so university leaders are saying this is not a midyear cut but instead they are just asking the academic programs or departments to operate within the budget but if we're talking
5:40 am
less money and fewer classes, if it walks like a duck, it certainly talks like a duck. live in san jose, back to you in the studio. >> a university spokesman says at this point they don't know how many classes or programs will be cut. some of the highest home prices in america are right here in the bay area. it's true. alexis christoforous now of with the findings of a new survey joins us live in new york. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, frank and michelle. yup, california is home to the five most expensive real estate areas in the country. malibu is the most expensive with an average home price of $2.1 million. newport beach has the second most expensive real estate in the u.s. followed by saratoga, california, los gatos, and san francisco. new york is the only state that has marks ranked on both the most expensive and most affordable list and cleveland, ohio in case you're wondering is the most affordable real estate market there an average 4 bedroom home goes for 64
5:41 am
thousand dollars. here on wall street, we're pointing to a higher open after a mixed day yesterday. the dow was down 20. nasdaq up 3. it certainly didn't take long for customers to sound off on kmart's decision to open at 6 a.m. thanksgiving day and stay open for 41 straight hours. hundreds of kmart customers took to social media and threatened to boycott the retailer. they said it is heartless and shameful that kmart won't let employees be with their families during that holiday. and ryan reese certainly knew when to hold 'em. the 23-year-old poker professional from michigan won the world series of poker main event last night at the end of a dramatic 3.5-hour card session. he walked away $8.4 million richer. and frank and michelle, i'd say he also has some major bragging rights this morning. >> he can buy a lot of houses in cleveland with that money. >> there you go. [ laughter ] >> reporter: that's right! >> alexis christoforous of, thank you.
