Buffet Rule Favored by 60% of Americans

According to a recent poll conducted by Gallup, a majority of Americans favor the Buffet Rule, a measure that would impose that households with an income of $1 million or more pay at least 30% in taxes. Despite the fact that the majority of Americans approve of the rule, the public remains largely divided along party lines. More than 50% of both Democrats and Independents favor the rule, while only 43% of Republicans do. Additionally, although there appears to be broad public support for implementing the rule, the public does view it as a priority. When respondents were asked what should be the country’s biggest concern, less than 1% cited the growing income disparity between Americans as the most important issue.
