With Californians staring down the prospect of a crowded ballot next fall, a new poll finds that 61 percent of likely voters believe there are too many propositions.

At the same time, about the same percentage say they are satisfied with the way the initiative process is working, according to Public Policy Institute of California survey released late Tuesday.

PPIC asked about the importance of four ballot measures that all could go before voters.

Less important is an effort to extend Proposition 30 tax increases, according to the poll.
