Poll: Raise Taxes on Millionaires!
Forget $250,000 as a tax-cut decision point: Why not raise taxes on millionaires?
That's what most people support, according to a new poll from Crossroads GPS, the Republican group that played a major role in 2010 campaign spending. While other polls have showed the public supportive of extending only the Bush tax cuts on earnings under $250,000, as President Obama pledged to do and as congressional Democrats have called for, the new Crossroads GPS survey shows the public largely ambivalent on the question (49 percent want to extend only the sub-$250K cuts, while 48 percent want to extend all of them).
But when asked about millionaires, the GPS respondents were more supportive of a partial expiration:
Crossroads GPS surveyed 1,000 likely voters by telephone Nov. 29 - Dec. 2, for a margin of error of +/- 3.1 percent.
