PPIC Poll on Calif. Budget has Good News, Bad News for Everyone

Share | |
(Sacramento, CA)
Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Here are the results Democrats and the governor will point to: About 70 percent of voters support Brown's proposal to raise the sales tax half a percent and raise the income tax on the rich - including a slight majority of Republicans.  And nearly 80 percent dislike the proposed trigger cuts to schools if that tax measure fails.

But here are the results Republicans will point to: Nearly 60 percent of adults both believe the state could cut spending while still providing the same level of services - and support a strict cap on state spending, which like the governor's tax initiative is also heading for the November ballot. 

As for Brown's entire budget proposal - the cuts, the taxes and the trigger cuts if the taxes fail - voters are split: 48 percent in favor, 46 percent opposed.
