The Numbers Don’t Lie

CapitolWatch spotted a recent Quinnipiac poll that confirms the results of the poll the Yankee Institute conducted a couple weeks ago.

In the Yankee poll, Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s proposal to eliminate the $500 state tax credit was the least popular part of the package of tax increases that he has recommended in the new state budget. The poll showed that 73 percent of likely voters oppose the the governor’s plan to end the popular credit of up to $500 on homeowners’ state income taxes for the property taxes that they have paid to their cities and towns. Only 15 percent favor the proposal, the survey shows.

In the Quinnipiac poll, 74 percent were against eliminating the [$500 state tax] credit – virtually exactly the same number as in the Yankee poll.
