PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Their Government
Key findings from the current survey:
- Democrat Gavin Newsom is likely voters’ top choice in the state’s gubernatorial primary; Republican John Cox and Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa are in a close race for the second spot on November’s ballot. Senator Dianne Feinstein holds a commanding lead over fellow Democrat Kevin de León.
- A single-payer state health care plan has the support of 53 percent of likely voters. But if the plan requires raising taxes, support declines to 41 percent.
- A solid 67 percent of likely voters say that immigrants benefit the state because of their hard work and job skills.
