Legislature’s Approval Ratings Hit All-Time Low, Poll Finds
A Field Poll released on Tuesday finds that only 10% of California's registered voters approve of the state Legislature's performance, while 80% disapprove. The latest approval ratings are the lowest the Legislature has received since the poll began in 1983. Mark DiCamillo, director of the Field Poll, said the Legislature's low approval ratings likely stem from lawmakers' record-breaking delay in passing a budget for the current fiscal year.
