PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Their Government
Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Sonja Petek, and Nicole Willcoxon

January 2011

Some findings of the current survey:

  • Fifty-three percent of Californians support Governor Brown’s special election proposal to extend tax and fee increases.
  • Majorities would be willing to raise taxes to spare K–12 education, higher education, and health and human services from cuts.
  • The share of residents who see the state as going in the right direction—a minority—is up 22 points since October.
