PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and the Environment
Key findings from the current survey:
- Strong majorities of California adults (72%) and likely voters (66%) favor the new state law mandating reductions in greenhouse gas emissions; 56% of adults and 49% of likely voters support the state’s cap-and-trade program.
- Half of Californians believe state climate policies will lead to more jobs, while most (54%) expect gas prices to rise.
- Overall job approval is low in California for both the president and Congress; state leaders fare much better, and their approval ratings on environmental issues have risen.
