Field Poll: Californians Support Millionaire’s Tax Over Other Proposals

SACRAMENTO (CBS/AP) – A new Field Poll finds California’s registered voters are most likely to support a so-called millionaire’s tax rather than two other tax initiatives proposed for the November ballot.

The poll released Friday says 63 percent support the proposal to raise taxes on millionaires, backed by the California Federation of Teachers.

KCBS’ Doug Sovern Reports:

Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposal to raise income taxes on those who make more than $250,000 a year and temporarily increase the sales tax by half a cent has 58 percent support.

A third measure by wealthy attorney Molly Munger has just 45 percent support, with 48 percent opposed.

KCBS and Chronicle Insider Phil Matier Reports:

Field interviewed 1,003 registered voters by telephone from Feb. 2-18. Overall, the poll’s sampling error rate is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, but is 5.5 percentage points for the Munger initiative.

    Go ahead and raise taxes and drive even more people with money from Ca. That just makes room for more poor people to move there to live off the remaining rich.
