New Tulchin Research Poll Shows Majority of California Voters Support ACLU-backed Assembly Bill 953 to Curb Racial Profiling
A new Tulchin Research poll, conducted on behalf of the ACLU of California Center for Advocacy & Policy, finds that a solid majority of voters in California believe police discriminate against communities of color and support proposals to address the current crisis in biased policing.
According to a new poll conducted by Tulchin Research, 67% of likely California voters support AB 953: The Racial and Identity Profiling Act of 2015, a state bill introduced by Assemblymember Shirley Weber (D-San Diego) to combat racial and identity profiling by law enforcement. The poll results of 900 likely November 2016 voters come as the bill heads to the California Senate Appropriations Committee.
Other Notable Findings
• Nationwide events: Nearly every voter (95%) reports having heard of the recent high-profile police shootings and misconduct cases in Ferguson, New York and Charleston and most voters (80%) believe something like that could very well happen in California.
• Police discrimination: 71 percent of California voters believe police are most likely to discriminate against young black men. Similarly, voters view Latinos (58%) and young Latino men (61%) as groups that are more likely to be discriminated against.
• Use of force legislation: There is strong voter support (71%) for legislation aimed to increase transparency and accountability when it comes to law enforcement’s use of force reporting practices, such as AB 619 (Weber) and AB 71 (Rodriguez).

Tulchin Research poll conducted on behalf of Defenders of Wildlife and Earthjustice finds support for landmark conservation law spans the political spectrum
While the Endangered Species Act is currently under attack by corporate special interests and their allies in Washington, a new national survey finds a broad-based national consensus on the value of and need for this landmark environmental safeguard.
Tulchin Research recently conducted a survey among 600 registered voters nationwide on behalf of the Defenders of Wildlife and Earthjustice. Our poll finds that nine out of ten voters (90%) support the law – including a majority (53%) who say they strongly support it – and that support extends across the country, across all demographic groups, and across the political spectrum. In today’s highly polarized political environment, it is notable that the Endangered Species Act is supported by overwhelming majorities of self-identified liberals (96% support), moderates (94%), and conservatives (82%). Additionally, the poll finds 68 percent of registered voters indicating they would be more likely to vote for a member of Congress “who supports environmental safeguards such as the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Air Act, and the Clean Water Act,” while just 10 percent say they would be less likely to vote for that member.
