AP VoteCast: Health care, climate top issues in California

Posted at 11:55 PM, Mar 03, 2020

WASHINGTON (AP) - Voters in California's Democratic primary ranked health care and climate change as the most important issues facing the country, well above the economy, race relations, foreign policy, and many other social issues.

That's according to a wide-ranging AP VoteCast survey of the Democratic primary electorate in California.

VoteCast also found more voters in California's Democratic primary said they wanted a candidate who would bring fundamental change to Washington, rather than one who would restore the political system to how it was before Donald Trump was elected in 2016.

The Associated Press declared Bernie Sanders the winner in California just after the polls closed, basing the call on data from VoteCast.
