Breaking Up With California

In 1985, 78 percent of California residents considered the state "one of the best places to live." Now, only 39 percent feel that way, according to a joint UC Berkeley and Field Poll. The poll was based on a telephone survey of 898 registered voters in February. Joe Christensen, the executive director of the Bill Lane Center for the American West at Stanford University, said while the poll reflected personal financial woes, Californians are also bothered by a dysfunctional state government mired in a budget crisis.
