PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Their Government
Some findings of the current survey:
- Proposition 19, which would have legalized marijuana in the state, captured the most voter interest of all propositions on the Nov. 2 ballot.
- The support of independents was key for the election victories of governor-elect Jerry Brown and Senator Barbara Boxer.
- Although every incumbent state legislator was re-elected, 81 percent of voters say they disapprove of the legislature’s job performance.
