Voters Favor Extending Tax Cuts for Everyone

In an article published by the Washington Post this week, reporter Chris Cillizza commented on the percentage of voters who favor a tax increase on incomes over $250,000.

Cillizza writes that Democrats have publicly proclaimed their willingness to jump off the fiscal cliff this year in defiance of Republicans refusal to end tax cuts for those making over $250,000, and that "the public is on their side."

However, according to a recent McClatchy-Marist poll it is clear this is not the case. As evidenced by the poll results, the majority of voters support extending tax cuts for everyone, including those making over $250,000:

The voter sentiment in the McClatchy-Marist poll is echoed in a study released last week by Ernst & Young. The study found that not extending tax cuts for those making over $250,000 "would translate into a decline in GDP of $200 billion and employment by roughly 710,000 jobs."

It is obvious from recent polling that a strong majority of voters favor extending all tax cuts, including those for persons earning over $250,000.

How can this be? I thought the entire nation was lined up against the “rich”.
