A tax raising question for the DL community

Filed in Delaware, National by on November 19, 2012

Does anyone know what, “Do you favor raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans?” is polling at?

To hear Republicans discuss it, you’d think that raising taxes on the wealthy was less popular than a proposal for universal gonorrhea.

    Info from The Hill today:

    According to a poll released Friday by Rasmussen, 57 percent of voters say they agree with the president’s proposal to raise taxes on those making more than $250,000 per year. Thirty-five percent of those surveyed say they oppose that move.

    Meanwhile, a new poll of New Hampshire by Democratic-affiliated Public Policy Polling showed that nearly half of all voters there — 49 percent — say President Obama’s mandate following his reelection is to focus on jobs. That’s compared to only 22 percent of voters who say the president’s mandate involved reducing the debt.

    One more:

    A new poll released Monday showed that nearly two-thirds of Americans believe President Obama will make a sincere effort to reach across the aisle as lawmakers work to avoid the looming “fiscal cliff.”

    But while 65 percent of Americans think the president is willing to compromise, less than half — 48 percent — say the same about Republicans in Congress. Meanwhile, some 57 percent of Americans say that Democrats in the legislature will make a sincere effort for compromise.

    “49 percent — say President Obama’s mandate following his reelection is to focus on jobs.”

    But how many believe cutting taxes on the rich is a jobs program? Maybe not so much in NH, but in lots of places people think it is. People who would rather believe FOX News than their own eyes.
