PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Their Government
Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Renatta DeFever, Lunna Lopes, and Jui Shrestha

March 2015

Some findings of the current survey:

  • Californians are worried about the water supply in their part of the state and say that people in their region are not doing enough to respond to the drought.
  • Many share the governorís concern about the stateís roads and bridges; fewer support tax increases to fund improvements.
  • Most favor using state budget surpluses to restore higher education funding, but only if tuition and fees do not increase.
  • Support for legalizing marijuana (53%) is at its highest point; more than half of Californians would not be bothered if a legal marijuana store opened in their neighborhood.
