  • Tax Hikes For Rich Still Win Over Cuts for All

    Opposing all tax increases or only raising taxes on the wealthy? Voters still lean toward the latter choice.

Thirty-eight percent (38%), however, would vote for the candidate who opposed all tax hikes, but 18% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Ooouuuch.
