California is a great place to live -- at least liberals and folks living along the coast think so.
For conservatives and people living in the Central Valley? Not so much.
A new Field Poll released Thursday shows that Californians' perceptions about living in the Golden State are fractured along political, geographic and generational boundaries.
When Democrats were asked to rate California as a place to live, 53% said it was “one of the best places," another 26% agreed it was “nice, but not outstanding” and 21% called it about average or poor. Among Republicans, 29% described it as the “best place,” 26% as nice, and 42% opted for average or poor.
Among those belonging to other parties -- or no political party -- 43% called it one of the best, 26% nice and a third said average or poor.
