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

January 2016

Some findings of the current survey:

  • Californians are divided over Governor Brown’s budget plan—they are also split on how the state should use its budget surplus.
  • Most prefer alternatives to the governor’s plan to fund transportation infrastructure projects by raising fees and taxes.
  • Among Californians, Hillary Clinton has the highest favorability rating and Donald Trump has the highest unfavorability rating.
  • A record-high share of Californians (43%) view terrorism and security as a big problem in the state.
