PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Their Government

Summary

Some findings of the current survey:

  • A strong majority of likely voters favor Governor Jerry Brown’s proposed tax initiative and oppose the “trigger cuts” that public schools would face if the measure fails.
  • Likely voters are split in their approval of President Obama (49% approve, 49% disapprove, 2% unsure).
  • A majority of Californians think the state could maintain current levels of service with lower revenues.
