Tax Hike For Rich Supported By Plurality Of Americans: Poll

Americans support raising taxes on the rich by a two-to-one margin, with many believing an increase would both help the economy and make the tax system fairer, according to a Pew poll released Monday afternoon.

Forty-four percent of adults surveyed said that raising taxes on incomes above $250,000 would help the economy and increase fairness, while 22 percent said it would hurt the economy and 21 percent that it would make the system less fair.

Opinions split somewhat down partisan lines, with 64 percent of Democrats predicting raising taxes on the wealthy would help the economy, compared to 27 percent of Republicans.
