Democrats losing debate over tax cuts say voters
Republicans would be wise to remember this when they introduce the specifics of their budget proposal. If they do and the Democrats reject their proposals, they will have a leg up with the voters in the 2010 races.
Democrats in the Senate are talking of cutting back President Obama's pledge of tax cuts for most Americans in the face of record deficits. But 63% of U.S. voters now say tax cuts would help the economy, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
That’s up from 56% in February and marks the highest level found in years of tracking this question. Scott Rasmussen has posed this polling question regularly since the mid-nineties and Rasmussen Reports now tracks it on a monthly basis.
Only 13% say tax cuts would hurt the economy, down from 16% a month ago.
Most voters (51%) believe increasing taxes would hurt the economy, the highest reading on this question since early January. Just under a quarter (23%) of voters say tax increases would help the country's economic situation.
