What’s Next California Deliberative Poll

Several weeks ago we announced California’s first-ever statewide deliberative poll.  The landmark event took place this weekend in Torrance.  Turnout was even higher than expected and conversation was lively both in the large-group sessions and especially in the break-out sessions where groups of 17-20 Californians of all ages and demographics and from all across the state discussed a series of proposals aimed at fixing some of the state’s most difficult challenges.

Zocalo Public Square also ran several interesting pieces on the event: one by the processes inventor James Fishkin and another that debated the probable significance of the event.
