PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Their Government
Key findings from the current survey:
- In California’s gubernatorial race, Democrats Gavin Newsom and Antonio Villaraigosa are in a virtual tie—but a quarter of likely voters are undecided. In the US Senate race, Dianne Feinstein leads fellow Democrat Kevin de León by double digits.
- Likely voters are divided on repealing the recently passed gas tax and easing Proposition 13 tax limits on commercial properties.
- Californians see immigration as the top issue for state leaders to work on this year, and many are closely following news about sexual misconduct in the legislature.
