Clinton and Trump supporters are split on these issues. </li> </ul> <p align="left"><img border="0" src="/content/images/double_arrow.jpg" alt="" /><span style="color: rgb(205, 113, 0); font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;"> Crosstabs</span>: <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://www.ppic.org/content/pubs/other/Crosstabs_AllAdults0916.pdf">All Adults</a></span> [PDF]<br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://www.ppic.org/content/pubs/other/Crosstabs_LikelyVoters0916.pdf">Likely Voters</a></span> [PDF]<br /> </p> <p align="left"><img border="0" src="/content/images/double_arrow.jpg" alt="" /><span style="color: rgb(205, 113, 0); font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;"> Time Trends</span>: <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://www.ppic.org/content/data/TimeTrends_AllAdults0916.pdf">All Adults</a></span> [PDF]<br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://www.ppic.org/content/data/TimeTrends_LikelyVoters0916.pdf">Likely Voters</a></span> [PDF]<br /> </p> <p>The survey was supported with funding from <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://irvine.org/">The James Irvine Foundation</a></span> and the <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://www.ppic.org/main/support_detail.asp?i=1660#donor">PPIC Donor Circle</a></span>.</p> Wed, 21 Sep 2016 00:00:00 PDT PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and the Environment http://www.ppic.org/main/publication.asp?i=1200 <p><span style="font-weight: bold;">Some findings of the current survey:</span></p> <ul> <li>Ten years after California enacted AB 32, strong majorities support the law’s greenhouse gas emission reduction goal and favor expanding it.</li> <li>Most Californians say they are willing to pay more for electricity from renewable sources to help reduce global warming.</li> <li>When asked about the most important environmental issue facing the state, more Californians name water supply and drought than any other issue.</li> <li>Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump in the presidential race; in the US Senate matchup, Kamala Harris leads Loretta Sanchez.</li> </ul> <p align="left"><img border="0" alt="" src="/content/images/double_arrow.jpg" /><span style="color: rgb(205, 113, 0); font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;"> Crosstabs</span>: <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://www.ppic.org/content/pubs/other/Crosstabs_AllAdults0716.pdf">All Adults</a></span> [PDF]<br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://www.ppic.org/content/pubs/other/Crosstabs_LikelyVoters0716.pdf">Likely Voters</a></span> [PDF]<br /> </p> <p align="left"><img border="0" alt="" src="/content/images/double_arrow.jpg" /><span style="color: rgb(205, 113, 0); font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;"> Time Trends</span>: <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://www.ppic.org/content/data/TimeTrends_AllAdults0716.pdf">All Adults</a></span> [PDF]<br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://www.ppic.org/content/data/TimeTrends_LikelyVoters0716.pdf">Likely Voters</a></span> [PDF]<br /> </p> <p> The survey was supported with funding from <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://kabcenellfdn.org/">The Dirk and Charlene Kabcenell Foundation</a></span>, the <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://www.heisingsimons.org/">Heising-Simons Foundation</a></span>, the <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://piscesfoundation.org/">Pisces Foundation</a></span>, and the <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://sdbjrfoundation.org/">S.
