Post-Midterms: The Pulse of Californians

After a midterm election that saw Republicans make big gains, a new USC College/L.A. Times Poll peeks into the minds of California voters, with a special look at Latinos and Asian Americans. How did they vote? What do they think of immigration? What should Governor-
Elect Jerry Brown tackle first?

The new poll features a significant oversample of Latino and Asian American voters, who now make up about a quarter of California’s registered voters.

Hot topics addressed include:

  • How did Latinos and Asian Americans vote in the races for California governor and U.S. Senate?
  • In order to reduce the state’s budget deficit, where do Californians think we should cut state spending?
  • What do California voters believe should be the top priorities for Governor-Elect Jerry Brown?
  • Looking ahead to future elections, how do California voters feel about immigration reform, gay marriage, and the environment?

Full poll results will be posted at today.
