PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Their Government, January 2007
Mark Baldassare

January 2007

Some findings of the current survey:

  • The majority of California residents (58%) -including Democrats (55%)- approve of the way Arnold Schwarzenegger is handling his job as governor.
  • Six in 10 voters (62%) think that the governor and legislature will be able to work together and accomplish a lot this year.
  • A large majority (79%) favor the governor's proposal to guarantee medical coverage for children of low-income families. Support drops if the plan covers all low-income children regardless of immigration status.
  • Sixty-nine percent say it was not worth going to war in Iraq.

This is the 74th PPIC Statewide Survey and the 21st in the Californians and Their Government series. It is made possible with funding from The James Irvine Foundation.
