PPIC Statewide Survey (California)
APPROVAL RATINGS OF FEDERAL ELECTED OFFICIALS
President Obama’s approval rating has rebounded to 60 percent among Californians. The last time his approval was at this level was in July 2013 (61%). Approval has increased 11 points since October 2014 (49%), and is also higher than last January (53%). In a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll, 46 percent of adults nationwide approved of President Obama. In our survey, 50 percent of likely voters approve and 48 percent disapprove of the president. His approval rating is 80 percent among Democrats, 50 percent among independents,http://www.ppic.org/content/pubs/survey/S_115MBS.pdf
and 13 percent among Republicans. Majorities of men (62%) and women (58%), as well as Californians across age and education groups approve of the president. An overwhelming
majority of Latinos (75%) approve of the president, compared to 42 percent of whites. (Our final day of interviewing took place the night of the president’s State of the Union address.)
The approval rating of the newly elected Congress is at 38 percent. Approval of the U.S. Congress has increased 14 points since October 2014 (24%) and is higher than last January (26%). Approval of the U.S. Congress after the last presidential election was 34 percent (January 2013). Among adults nationwide in the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 16 percent approved of the U.S. Congress. One in four California likely voters (24%) approve of Congress. Similar shares of Democrats (27%), Republicans (30%), and independents (31%) approve. Latinos (53%) are far more likely than whites (23%) to express approval of the U.S. Congress. Approval declines as age and income levels increase.
...California is no microcosm of America. At this point, it is nearly impossible to say what a 'likely voter of 2016' is.
