    More bullshit from you. Another useless poll. Did they poll you and your special ed class to come up with that number, or what?

    Just wait until this Democratic Congress raises taxes next year. :)

    And, if you think they won't, you're stupider than I thought. Any economist and tax planner will tell you: spend this year, because taxes will be unfathomable over the next few.

    Poll taken where? By who? And who did they talk to? Obviously, this can't be reflective of a legitimate population poll or the stock market wouldn't continue to spiral out of control. Consumer spending would be up. Major Corporations wouldn't be tanking.

    Actually, if you look behind the numbers they make total sense. 50% of the population pays next to nothing. The next 25% have a small marginal tax rate. So getting to 61% is not hard. Hell, I would happy if I paid next to nothing, too.

    Survey Methods

    Results are based on telephone interviews with 1,027 national adults, aged 18 and older, conducted April 6-9, 2009. For results based on the total sample of national adults, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±3 percentage points.

    Interviews are conducted with respondents on land-line telephones (for respondents with a land-line telephone) and cellular phones (for respondents who are cell-phone only).

    In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of public opinion polls.

    Heh.

    Gallop

    Now you will tout the paltry few who show up at these rallies and say they are more important than any poll.

    BUT if a poll comes out you like the results of well then that will be a great poll huh?

    The poll is accurate and Gallup is not lying or making it up. They actually know what they are doing. The results are merely reflecting the fact most Americans do not pay much in the way of income taxes. The bottom 50% pay 4% of all income taxes. Of course they think what they pay is fair. They aren't paying anything!
