Do Early Polls on Split Roll Tell Us Anything?

Once again, PPIC tested the value of Proposition 13 with voters. And, once again likely voters declared Prop 13 worthy. Asked if Proposition 13 was mostly a good or a bad thing, 64% of likely voters said it was a good thing, only 24% responded it was mostly bad. The margin was larger than the usual two-to-one support for Proposition 13.

Approval for Prop 13 was greater than 60% across most categories: Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Moderates and Conservatives. Only Liberals rated it below 60% but still declared it was mostly a good thing by a healthy 56%.

The overall attitude toward Prop 13 will certainly play a key role in the coming campaign.
