PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and the Future
Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Sonja Petek, and Jui Shrestha

December 2012

Some findings of the current survey:

  • Californians show signs of optimism about the state’s future.
  • Strong majorities support spending reforms; smaller majorities support lowering the vote thresholds to pass state and local taxes.
  • Californians favor a "split roll” property tax but express record-high opposition to taxing services or increasing the vehicle license fee.
