Heading into the final weekend before Election Day, the Field Poll released a new survey finding that 59% of likely voters say they will vote yes on Proposition 55, which will maintain the current income taxes on the wealthiest to protect education and other vital services from billions in devastating budget cuts. The newest public poll results is consistent with the similar strong levels of support found in other public polls this year.
“This poll once again demonstrates the strong desire of Californians to protect our students and schools from cuts and keep vital services intact,” said Jennifer Wonnacott, campaign spokesperson. “While voters have a lot of issues on the ballot to consider, they recognize that Prop 55 is the only one that prevent massive budget cuts, and that our children and communities are counting on them to vote yes on Election Day.”
The online survey was conducted among an overall sample of 1,498 Californians considered likely to vote in the November 2016 general election from October 25-31, 2016 in English and Spanish.
A Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) survey released earlier this week also found that 59% of voters support extending the income tax rates on the wealthiest individuals and couples.
