New Field Poll Shows Voters Support Some Tax Measures

The Field Poll found the most support for a measure backed by the California Federation of Teachers.  Sixty-three percent of voters say they support the initiative to raise income taxes on people who make more than one-million dollars a year.
Fifty-eight percent like the Governor's measure that would temporarily raise the sales tax and income taxes on people who earn more than 250-thousand dollars.  
Field Poll Director Mark Di Camillo notes voters' preference for raising income taxes rather than the sales tax.
DI CAMILLO: "Twice as many people on the sales tax question said don't raise it at all as said that about the income tax. So what that says to me is there is greater stomach in the public's mind for raising the personal income tax at this moment just generically."
The Field Poll found opposition stronger than support for an initiative that would raise income taxes across- the-board to help fund schools.
