The December PPIC Statewide Survey takes place as California’s 2010 gubernatorial race is beginning to take shape and as many initiative measures circulate for ballot qualification. The survey focuses on likely voters’ preferences for gubernatorial candidates, satisfaction with candidate choices, and the importance of issues that may be on election ballots next year.

The survey also asks Californians about their overall mood and outlook for California and the country, about the state’s economy and budget situation, and about regional water supplies and the importance of passing a state water bond. The survey further looks at national issues, including attitudes toward federal policies on the economy, health care reform, and Afghanistan.
This study was conducted with funding from The James Irvine Foundation. Lunch will be provided and there is no charge to attend. Pre-registration is requested.

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