Poll Finds Support among Californians for Tax Increases

Hosted by

Governor Brown appears to have changed the political atmosphere in California. Just last November, 44 percent of the people polled by the LA Times and USC's Dornsife College of Letters said they wanted the state's massive deficit reduced by spending cuts alone. Now, that's dropped to just 33 percent; and 60 percent -- Republicans as well as Democrats — want the election Brown has called for, with the option of combining spending cuts with increases in income, sales and vehicle taxes.
