"Chart: ‘Huge’ Majorities Support Millionaire’s Surtax"

A new poll out today from the National Journal shows that 59 percent of Americans agree with the Occupy Wall Street protesters. Moreover, Americans support a surtax on millionaires — something Democrats have proposed to pay for a jobs bill — “by a huge 68 – 27 margin.” These findings are consistent with several other polls on the 99 Percent Movement and those on raising taxes on the wealthy. As this chart demonstrates, Republicans are the only group which opposes the surtax.
