Columnist Mulls Low Support for Gov. Brown, Tax Hike Plan
Columnist Dan Walters notes that a new Field Poll found that just 52% of voters back a compromise tax hike plan developed by Gov. Brown and supporters of the "Millionaires Tax," short of "the 60% mark that political strategists generally believe a tax increase must have before the campaign begins." He concludes, "With Brown's approval rating now well under 50% and the shaky support for his tax measure, it could evolve into a referendum on his governorship -- and it might not take much to sink his tax hike."
