Where the money is

“Nearly six-in-ten survey respondents (58%) also say the rich pay too little in taxes, while 26% say they pay their fair share, and just 8% say they pay too much. Even among those who describe themselves as upper or upper-middle class1, 52% say upper-income Americans don’t pay enough in taxes.”

That’s from a Pew Research Center poll in August. The Elon University Poll conducted in August has a similar result. North Carolina likely voters were asked, “Do you support or oppose extending [the Bush] tax cuts for people making over $250,000?” Fifty-two percent said they opposed the extension; 37% supported it. And this result is from a group that supports Gov. Romney over President Obama, 47%-43%.
