PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and the Environment
Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Jennifer Paluch, and Sonja Petek

July 2008

Some findings of the current survey:

  • About half of Californians believe people will have to make major sacrifices to reduce global warming’s impact.
  • Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s job approval rating (43% approve, 45% disapprove) is down 9 points since July 2007.
  • Sen. Barack Obama leads Sen. John McCain 50 percent to 35 percent in the 2008 presidential race.

This is the 88th PPIC Statewide Survey and the eighth in the Californians and the Environment survey series, whose intent is to inform policymakers, encourage discussion, and raise public awareness about environment, education, and population issues. This survey was conducted with funding from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
