Some findings of the current survey:

  • The state water bond and high-speed rail system lack majority backing, but both would gain support if costs were reduced.
  • Californians remain supportive of the citizens’ initiative, but they also favor procedural reforms.
  • Californians support both a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants and tougher border control.
