Trump Day 12: Californians Are Opposed To New Immigration Policy, Opposed to ‘Sanctuary State’ Designation, Opposed to Secession

SurveyUSA Breaking News - 143 days ago

Californians react to the first 12 days of a Donald Trump Presidency in this statewide survey conducted 01/31/17 exclusively for KABC-TV Los Angeles, KPIX-TV San Francisco, KGTV-San Diego, the San Diego Union Tribune, and KFSN-TV Fresno. Among the key findings:

Residents are torn by Trump’s new immigration policy: A plurality, 46%, is against forbidding individuals from 7 counties from entering America. But a plurality, 39%, says that the policy does make America safer. At the same time, a majority of those with an opinion, 58%, says the policy sends the wrong message to the world.

A majority do not want California’s sanctuary cities to lose federal funding. Residents are split, however, on whether California should retaliate against the Trump administration by withholding federal tax dollars that flow through the state on their way to Washington DC, with a 6 point plurality, 42%, favoring withholding. A plurality, 44%, opposes designating all of California as a “sanctuary state.”

Most Californians don’t know much about “Yes California,” a grassroots movement that wants California to withdraw from the United States and form a new country on its own. 18% at this hour favor secession, known also as CalExit. 68% oppose.

19% statewide say the Trump presidency has so far been better than they had expected. 35% say it has been worse than they had expected. 38% say it has been as expected.

A plurality, 48%, say Trump will go down in history as one of America’s worst presidents, compared to 19% who say Trump will be remembered as one of America’s greatest presidents.

38% — including 55% of Democrats and 9% of Republicans — say Trump will be removed from office before his first term ends. 26% say Trump will serve out one full term. 21% say Trump will serve 2 full terms.

Trump has a 34% job approval at this hour and a 52% job disapproval rating, for a Net Approval of Minus 18. California Governor Jerry Brown has a 48% job approval and 30% disapproval, for a Net Approval of Plus 18.

Context: SurveyUSA interviewed 800 California adults statewide 01/31/17. Cell-phone and landline respondents were included. Research was conducted 100% online. Interviews were completed after Trump fired the Interim Attorney General 01/30/17 and prior to Trump announcing his pick for the Supreme Court of the United States. California is the most populated of the 50 United States. 12% of the nation’s population lives in California. 14% of the USA’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) comes from California, which by some measures makes California the 6th largest economy in the world, were it to become its own independent nation. California today has a larger economy than Russia, Canada, Australia, India, and France and Italy. If supporters of “Yes California” obtain approximately 585,000 signatures on a petition by July 2017, the secession question could be put before California voters in 2018. That would not be the end of the process, just the beginning. An amendment to the United States constitution would need to be ratified by 38 states before the American flag flies with 49 stars. In the 11/08/16 Presidential election, Hillary Clinton carried California 62% to 32%. Trump received a smaller percentage of the popular vote in California than any Republican in the past 100 years.
