From World Net Daily,

A majority of likely voters believe the tax plan being touted by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama would leave them worse off than they are now, according to a new poll.

The ATI-News/Zogby Poll revealed today 52 percent of those surveyed believe Obama’s tax scheme would leave them worse off, including 52 percent of independents and 51 percent of women.

“Surprisingly, 18 percent of Obama’s own supporters said his tax plan would make them worse off,” the poll results said.

One in four Democrats believes Obama’s tax agenda would be damaging personally and one in five self-described liberals takes the same position, the poll showed. . . . .

Even 64 percent of Obama’s own supporters said his plan to raise taxes on businesses will either result in increased prices for goods, reduced pay for employees, and employee layoffs, as do 76 percent of Democrats and 78 percent of women.

“Even those who plan to vote for Obama think that average Americans, not the wealthy, would suffer under his tax plan,” said O’Leary. “Even lower-income Americans, who are the supposed beneficiaries under the Obama tax plan, reject the plan because they know that tax increases on businesses will be passed on to them in the form of higher prices on the goods they need, lower wages, fewer jobs and layoffs.”
