PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Their Government

Mark Baldassare, Lunna Lopes, Dean Bonner, and David Kordus

This research was supported with funding from the James Irvine Foundation and the PPIC Donor Circle.

A strong majority of Californians disapprove of President Trump’s job performance-but opinion varies widely across parties. Majorities differ with the president in their views on immigration, health care, climate change, and abortion. A solid majority approve of Governor Brown’s performance, but fewer than half favor his proposed budget.
