The May PPIC Statewide Survey is the third in the 2009 series of PPIC Statewide Surveys on Californians and Their Government. It focuses on the upcoming May 19 special election and on attitudes toward state and national issues. The survey examines likely voters’ support for the six measures on the May 19 ballot as well as perceptions of their importance and likely effectiveness. The survey also looks at Californians’ views of the most important issues facing the state today, the general direction and economic outlook for the state and the nation, and approval ratings for President Obama, Governor Schwarzenegger, the California Legislature, and Congress.
This study was conducted with funding from the James Irvine Foundation. This event is co-sponsored with the California Research Bureau.

PPIC President, CEO, and Survey Director Mark Baldassare is an expert in public opinion, on political, social, economic, and environmental public attitudes, and is the author of many books and reports on these subjects.
