New Tulchin Research Poll Is Part of the ACLU’s Effort to Form a Blue Ribbon Panel on Marijuana Legalization Lead by Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom
A new Tulchin Research poll finds that a solid majority of voters in California support a proposal to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana. The ACLU Thursday released results from this poll which shows ever-growing support for taxing and regulating marijuana among likely 2016 California voters across political, racial and geographic lines. The poll results make clear that voters offer strong support for legalizing marijuana when it is coupled with a comprehensive regulatory system and an ability to collect revenues to fund public services. Specifically, nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of voters support a proposal to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana in California for adults. In fact, nearly half (46 percent) of voters strongly support such a sample measure compared to less than a third of voters (27 percent) who strongly oppose it.
The proposal put to the 1,200 respondents likely to vote in November 2016 makes it clear that marijuana would still be illegal for minors and that there would be penalties for DUI. The sample measure also references the revenue that would be raised with a tax and the types of services that might be funded. When all of this is put together in a ballot measure, the poll finds strong support for legalizing, regulating and taxing marijuana across a wide range of demographic groups.
The ACLU of California announced Thursday that Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom will chair a blue ribbon panel that will study the complex legal and policy issues that must be resolved as California considers legalizing, taxing and regulating marijuana for adults. [Read more →]

New Poll Conducted for PACE/USC Rossier School of Education by Tulchin Research and M4 Strategies Shows Support For Keeping Power With Local Educators and Dchool Boards, But Not Without Accountability
Despite calls from Sacramento to reduce standardized testing in California public schools, voters strongly support the use of state standardized tests, both as an essential way to measure student performance and as an important element in teachers’ evaluations, a new PACE/USC Rossier School of Education Poll shows.
Nearly two-thirds of California voters said students should be tested in every grade level to ensure they are progressing, as opposed to 22 percent of voters who said California should cut back on testing. Among parents with school children, 66 percent said California should test students in each grade level and 25 percent said the state should cut back. [Read more →]
We are delighted that our successful and sophisticated campaign with Hawaii’s Pacific Resource Partnership to support a pro-rail candidate in the Honolulu mayor’s race has just received recognition from one of Hawaii’s leading independent blogs. In a recent post on iLind, guest contributor Neal Milner writes that “PRP was using modern, Obama-campaign-like methods” that allowed us to precisely target voters and run an effective campaign. We are proud to say that this type of research is emblematic of our work here at Tulchin Research, and we look forward to continuing to work with PRP on their ongoing campaigns in Hawaii.
