A Field Poll released today shows strong support for the water bond on California’s November ballot.

Fifty-two percent of likely voters say they’ll support the $7.5 billion bond in the fall election. 27 percent oppose it, while 21 percent remain undecided. But awareness of the measure remains low. The Field Poll found just 36 percent of likely voters had seen or heard anything about the bond. But support for the bond was even higher among voters with prior knowledge of the measure.

Sixty-six percent of Democrats support the measure, compared to 35 percent of Republicans. 47 percent of those with no party preference were in favor of the bond. Coastal counties registered more support than inland counties and men were more likely to support the bond than women.
