PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Their Government

Summary

Some findings of the current survey:

  • Half of likely voters favor extending Proposition 30 taxes temporarily—most support cigarette tax increases.
  • Californians continue to view local water supply as a big problem, but feel better about the way people are responding.
  • Solid majorities of Californians see public pension spending as a problem and most think voters should weigh in on changes to the system.
  • Californians are more supportive of immigration reform, abortion rights, and stricter gun laws than are adults nationwide.
