PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Their Government
Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, David Kordus, and Lunna Lopes

December 2015

Some findings of the current survey:

  • Californians are much more likely than adults nationwide to view global climate change as a very serious problem.
  • Two in three Californians say the state is divided into haves and have-nots.
  • Slightly more than half (54%) favor providing health care coverage for undocumented immigrants in California.
  • Half prioritize new ideas and a different approach over experience and a proven record in a presidential candidate.
