Vast Majority of Hispanics Want to Hike Taxes on Rich
Considering all the discussion post-election about what the GOP must do to win more Hispanic votes, this polling data is of interest. From ABC/Univision:
Latino voters overwhelmingly support tax increases on the wealthiest Americans as a way to reduce the deficit and deal with the looming fiscal cliff.
According to a new impreMedia/Latino Decisions survey of more than 5,600 Latino voters, a whopping 77 percent favor increasing taxes on the wealthy. While the vast majority of Democratic Latino voters — 86 percent — fall into that category, so do 51 percent of Republican Latino voters.
Only 12 percent say they favor a spending cuts-only approach, according to the survey.
