View Comments

Californians widely support Governor Brown’s proposal to raise taxes on high income earners to help fund schools and address California’s $9.2 billion budget deficit.

A USC/L.A. Times poll finds that 64 percent of voters surveyed said they support the measure. It would temporarily raise the state’s sales and income tax on people who make $250,000 or more.

Among those polled, 80 percent of Democrats approve the proposal while 38 percent of Republicans support it. 75 percent of independents said they liked his idea.
