PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Their Government
Key findings from the current survey:
- Two-thirds of Californians—a record high—say housing affordability is a big problem in their region; seven in ten support Governor Newsom’s spending plan to boost housing production.
- Majorities favor Newsom’s budget proposals to combat wildfires (81%) and expand the state earned income tax credit (73%).
- Most Californians disapprove of the federal tax overhaul that took effect in 2018 and say they pay more in state and local taxes than they should.
