California Counts August 2016 Survey of Californians

TOPLINE California Counts Survey Cross tabulation Report


The survey field dates were August 15-24, yielding 915 completed surveys and 44 partially completed
surveys. We also mailed 42 surveys to panelists who do not have access to the internet, but we have
not received and incorporated those survey responses yet. The margin of error for the distribution of
responses on any individual survey item is equal to or less than +/- four percentage points.

Now we would like to get your opinion on several of the propositions that have qualified for the ballot
this November.

CNTS5/6 – prop64_legalize/prop64_vote_leantowards

Proposition 641 proposes a law that would legalize marijuana and hemp in California law and enact
certain sales and cultivation taxes. If the election were being help today, would you vote 'YES' to legalize
marijuana or 'NO' to make no changes to the existing laws on marijuana?

Do you lean more towards voting YES, to legalize marijuana, or NO, to make no changes to existing laws
on marijuana? [IF CNTS5=8]

Respondents to the marijuana legalization ballot measure were erroneously asked about “Proposition
65,” although the actual ballot measure is Proposition 64. Respondents have been re-contacted so that
they are aware of our error. The authors of the survey are confident this error does not affect the
accuracy of the results.
