Poll: Californians support saving over restoring cuts to social services

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A new poll shows most Californians favor paying down the state's debts and building a reserve over restoring cuts to social services.The poll released Wednesday by the Public Policy Institute of California found 55 percent support more frugality. The findings are good news for Gov. Jerry Brown, whose budget plan calls for debt reduction and modest spending increases for education, health and human services and prisons. Many fellow Democrats in the Legislature would rather see more spending on social services. Lawmakers have until June 15 to pass a budget. The poll found that 61 percent approve of Brown's spending plan and 48 percent approve of the job he's doing. The telephone survey of 1,704 adults has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.
