"Poll: 60 Percent of Americans Favor ‘Buffett Rule’"

Sixty percent of Americans support President Obama’s proposed “Buffett Rule,” a new Gallup poll shows. The rule would implement a minimum tax rate for millionaires of 30 percent. Just 37 percent of those polled opposed the rule. Favorability of the Buffett Rule was highest among Democrats at 74 percent, while Independents and Republicans reported favorability at 63 percent and 43 percent respectively.
