Backers of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s progressive income tax released polling yesterday that lumped together constituents in 16 House districts held by Democrats, and claimed to show constituent support for Pritzker’s “fair tax” plan.
But individual district polling was nowhere to be found. Nor was a simple question on the progressive tax amendment itself.
In-district, live polling from Fabrizio, Lee & Associates shows why. Voting for the progressive tax amendment – regardless of the rates – could result in turnover in at least five House districts held by Democrats.
Full polling details: House District 49 (topline, crosstabs), House District 51 (topline, crosstabs), House District 96 (topline, crosstabs), House District 111 (topline, crosstabs), House District 112 (topline, crosstabs). Polling conducted March 24-25 for House District 112; March 20-21 for 49, 51, 96 and 111.
