America to McCain: We’re Okay with Higher Taxes and Spreading the Wealth . . . and Obama

The most recent CBS/New York Times poll finds Obama now leading McCain by 13 percent, 52 to 39 percent among likely voters. But the most interesting result is how respondents react to McCain’s anti-tax campaign. (h/t to Eric Kleefeld at TPM):

Do you think it is a good idea or a bad idea to raise income taxes on households and businesses that make MORE than $250,000 a year in order to help provide health insurance for people who are not covered by health insurance?

Good Idea 62%

Bad Idea 33%

Spreading the wealth . . . it’s the new patriotism.
