Obama better on global warming

California voters think he’d do a better job than Romney

Most likely voters in California think global warming is important and believe President Barack Obama would do a better job on that front, according to a new statewide survey from the Public Policy Institute of California. The candidates aren’t talking much about climate change, but 72 percent of California voters say the issue is important in determining their choice for president. While Obama is favored generally, 51 percent to 40 percent, as this chart shows a stronger majority, 54 percent, say they trust him to handle global warming, while only 33 percent trust Romney.
