Poll shows California voters support sales tax, income tax hikes

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) – A poll shows about two-thirds of likely voters support Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposal to increase taxes on the wealthy and raise the statewide sales tax to stave off education cuts. The recent survey by the Public Policy Institute of California says 60 percent of likely voters support Brown’s plan. The governor wants to put the issue to voters on the November 2012 ballot. The poll also finds that Californians continue to give elected officials low approval ratings. That could make it hard for Brown to rally voters to support his plan.

  1. I dont recall myself or anyone I know provided the opportunity to take this poll. Gov. Brown can’t manage the money they have. Why should I give them money I dont have for them to continue to mismanage.
