California Voters Want Business Tax Reform Now
Statewide Tax Reform Survey Shows Over 60% of California Voters Believe the Economy Can’t Afford to Wait until 2016 for Congress to act on Business Tax Reform
SACRAMENTO, CA— Main Street Growth & Opportunity Coalition-California, a state chapter of the national civic advocacy organization dedicated to raising awareness about pro-growth policies, today released results of a statewide voter survey indicating strong bi-partisan support for reforming the business tax code this year.
The voter survey shows a diverse cross-section of California voters strongly support enactment of federal business tax reform now and oppose waiting until after the 2016 elections to enact such reforms.
The survey found that a commanding 61.6% of respondents prefer to enact business tax reform now because the economy can’t afford to wait until after the 2016 elections. Only 26.5% preferred to wait until after the 2016 elections, while only 1% were specifically opposed to business tax reform (10.9% were unsure or didn’t answer the question).
The survey found that the intensity of preference to enact business tax reform now is high, with 48.3% strongly preferring to enact federal business tax reform now instead of waiting until after the next federal election. Although results showed bipartisan support, Democratic voters are especially supportive of enacting business tax reform now, and support is consistent across key demographics, including political parties, gender, age groups and geographic regions throughout the state.

The survey was conducted from April 9 to April 12 by Probolsky Research, and included a total of 1,000 respondents with a margin of error of +/-3.1%. Interviews were conducted with voters on both landline and cell phones and were offered in both English and Spanish.
