Anti Trump Politics in California are Breaking the Polls in Popularity

The Resistance News

February 14, 2017

Fascist Trump and Liberal California has been fighting each other for quite a while now, with latest Trump threatening to cut Federal money to California. However, it appears that Californians have brushed that Trump threat down the toilet.

Gov. Jerry Brown has never been more popular, and nearly two-thirds of adults in the nation’s most populous state want California to go its own way on climate change and immigration, according to a new poll.

Politico Reports:
Brown’s approval rating of 62 percent is a record high for the fourth-term governor in PPIC surveys, up from 57 percent in December. The Democrat-controlled Legislature has also seen its stock improve since Trump took office. Its 57 percent approval rating is the highest it has been since before the energy crisis in 2001.

Trump’s lopsided loss to Hillary Clinton in California in November contributed significantly to his loss of the national popular vote, and the president remains unpopular in the state after taking office. Just 30 percent of California adults approve of Trump’s job performance, according to the poll.

Californians’ view of the Republican-controlled Congress is also dismal, with one-third of adults approving of the job Congress is doing, according to the poll.

Brown was born in San Francisco, California, the only son of four children born to District Attorney of San Francisco and later Governor of California, Edmund Gerald “Pat” Brown Sr., and his wife, Bernice Layne Brown.[3] Brown’s father was of half-Irish and half-German descent.[4] Brown’s great-grandfather August Schuckman, a German immigrant, settled in California in 1852 during the California Gold Rush.[5]

Brown was a member of the California Cadet Corps at St. Ignatius High School, where he graduated in 1955.[6][7] In 1955, Brown entered Santa Clara University for a year, and left to attend Sacred Heart Novitiate, a Jesuit novice house, intent on becoming a Catholic priest.[8] Brown left the novitiate after three years,[9] enrolling at the University of California, Berkeley in 1960, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Classics in 1961. Brown went on to Yale Law School and graduated with a Juris Doctor in 1964.[3] After law school, Brown worked as a law clerk for California Supreme Court Justice Mathew Tobriner.

Returning to California, Brown took the state bar exam and passed on his second attempt.[10] He then settled in Los Angeles and joined the law firm of Tuttle & Taylor. In 1969, Brown ran for the newly created Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees, which oversaw community colleges in the city, and placed first in a field of 124.[11]

In 1970, Brown was elected California Secretary of State. Brown argued before the California Supreme Court and won cases against Standard Oil of California, International Telephone and Telegraph, Gulf Oil, and Mobil for election law violations.[11] In addition, he forced legislators to comply with campaign disclosure laws. While holding this office, he discovered the use of falsely notarized documents by then-President Richard Nixon to fraudulently earn a tax deduction for donation of his pre-presidential papers. Brown also drafted and helped to pass the California Political Reform Act of 1974, Proposition 9, passed by 70% of California’s voters in June 1974. Among other provisions, it established the California Fair Political Practices Commission.

In 1974, Brown ran in a highly contested Democratic primary for Governor of California against Speaker of the California Assembly Bob Moretti, San Francisco Mayor Joseph L. Alioto, Representative Jerome R. Waldie, and others. Brown won the primary with the name recognition of his father, Pat Brown, whom many people admired for his progressive administration.[12] In the General Election on November 5, 1974, Brown was elected Governor of California over California State Controller Houston I. Flournoy; Republicans ascribed the loss to anti-Republican feelings from Watergate, the election being held only ninety days after President Richard Nixon resigned from office. Brown succeeded Republican Governor Ronald Reagan, who retired after two terms.

SACRAMENTO – Less than three weeks into Donald Trump’s presidency, Gov. Jerry Brown has never been more popular, and nearly two-thirds of adults in the nation’s most populous state want California to go its own way on climate change and immigration, according to a new poll.

The poll, released late Thursday by the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California, comes amid intensifying conflict between Trump and heavily Democratic California. State lawmakers are fast-tracking legislation to shield undocumented immigrants from deportation, and they have hired Eric Holder, the former U.S. attorney general, to help prepare for potential litigation against the Trump administration on issues ranging from climate change to health care and immigration.

Brown’s approval rating of 62 percent is a record high for the fourth-term governor in PPIC surveys, up from 57 percent in December. The Democrat-controlled Legislature has also seen its stock improve since Trump took office. Its 57 percent approval rating is the highest it has been since before the energy crisis in 2001.

Trump’s lopsided loss to Hillary Clinton in California in November contributed significantly to his loss of the national popular vote, and the president remains unpopular in the state after taking office. Just 30 percent of California adults approve of Trump’s job performance, according to the poll.

Californians’ view of the Republican-controlled Congress is also dismal, with one-third of adults approving of the job Congress is doing, according to the poll.

While Trump was never expected to post favorable marks in deep blue California, the poll served as a significant measure of popular support for efforts at the state Capitol to resist his policies.

Sixty-five percent of California adults say the state and local governments should pursue their own policies to protect the rights of undocumented immigrants, while 63 percent of adults support state action to address global warming, according to the poll.

Asked what issue facing California is most important for Brown and lawmakers to address this year, immigration and illegal immigration rank first, tied with jobs and the economy.

Eight-five percent of Californians, including nearly two-thirds of Republicans, support a pathway to legal status for undocumented immigrants. Even among Californians who said they voted for Trump, 61 percent favor allowing undocumented immigrants to remain in the state.

“People are feeling good about the way California’s going right now,” said Mark Baldassare, director of the poll. “This is where they’re asking leadership to step in and make sure that, for California, the status quo continues.”

This past weekend, Trump threatened to withhold funding from California if it moves forward with additional protections for undocumented immigrants, telling Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly that “California in many ways is out of control.”

The poll, using live telephone interviews, was conducted Jan. 22-31, surveying 1,702 California adults. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.3 percentage points.

PPIC’s record of Brown’s public approval ratings does not include his first two terms, from 1975 to 1983. According to the recently closed Field Poll, Brown’s public approval ratings ran into the high 60s when he was first elected, before falling off in his second term.
