PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Their Government
Some findings of the current survey:
- Californians are divided on how to spend the budget surplus. But a majority of likely voters (57%) prefer to pay down state debt and build up the reserve, while just 39 percent prefer to restore funding for social services.
- Californians continue to express distrust in state and federal government; most think both are run by a few big interests looking out for themselves.
- A slim majority Californians oppose the increased use of fracking; 46 percent favor building the Keystone XL pipeline.
