PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Their Government
Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Sonja Petek, and Jui Shrestha

December 2013

Some findings of the current survey:

  • Californians are divided in their assessment of the Affordable Care Act, but most are aware that California has a health care exchange.
  • In the wake of the government shutdown and the flawed rollout of the national health insurance website, approval of both the president and Congress has dropped to record lows.
  • A record-high 66 percent of Californians say the state is economically divided into haves and have-nots.
