Poll: 59% disapprove of legislature's budget work



The conservative group Americans for Prosperity has a Florida poll showing: 53 percent of voters believe state spending is too high, and 59 percent disapprove of their state legislature’s handling of budget issues. And lower income Floridians aren't so keen on rich Floridians paying higher taxes: 61.5 percent of respondents earning under $30,000 rejected the idea of raising taxes on others.

The Feb. 2-5 telephone poll of 607 registered voters by Voter/Consumer Research has a margin of error of +/- 4 percent. It has some mighty odd regions, though, like West Palm/Jacksonville and Gainesville/Fort Myers/Tallahassee.
