A new poll released by the Public Policy Institute of California found that a majority of Californians are not in favor of the Governor’s plan to use the state lottery as a means to fix the current budget deficit.  Of those surveyed, 58 percent expressed their discontent for the lottery plan, while only 33 percent approved the proposal.  In addition, 54 percent found that the one percent, one-time sales tax increase to be acceptable, while 41 percent opposed it.  The survey also provides opinions on the performance of the Legislature, Proposition 13 and the upcoming eminent domain initiatives.
