Majority of Californians Back Brown’s Budget Plan, Poll Says
A recent Public Policy Institute of California poll finds 61% of surveyed state residents support Gov. Brown's overall budget plan. The surveyed respondents who backed the plan included a majority of independents and just under half of Republicans. In addition, more than half of the respondents (55%) called for paying the state's debt during the next budget cycle, while 39% wanted to increase social services funding.
