Issue 1: Ratings of So Cal Local Government Lukewarm


The 2006 survey found that a majority of Southern California residents have some degree of confidence in local government, although they have less confidence in local government’s ability to solve the problems that most affect them. Whites have more confidence than other ethnic groups do. Regionally, Inland empire residents have lost considerable confidence in local government since last year. Overall, ratings of local government performance vary by issue area, but most residents rate performance as neither adequate nor inadequate but somewhere in the middle. However there is greater polarization in opinion on government performance in 2006 than we found in 2005.
