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

March 2016

Some findings of the current survey:

  • Donald Trump leads with 38 percent support among likely voters in California’s Republican presidential primary; Hillary Clinton has the support of 48 percent of Democratic primary likely voters.
  • Democrats Kamala Harris and Loretta Sanchez lead the top-two primary for the U.S. Senate, but almost a third of likely voters are undecided.
  • Most Californians view increased spending on the maintenance of roads, highways, and bridges as very important to the state’s future.
  • With much of the state receiving seasonal rainfall, fewer Californians see their regional water supply as a big problem.
