Two-Thirds Say Maximum Tax Rate Should Be 20 Percent, According To Poll

From "Poll: What is the wealthy’s ‘fair share’ of taxes?" by Alexis Levinson on The Daily Caller:
The poll asked respondents: “What do you think is the maximum percentage that the federal government should take from any individual’s income?”
“Nearly two-thirds of voters — 65 percent overall, including 71 percent of Republicans, 62 percent of Independents, and 63 percent of Democrats — think the maximum tax rate should be twenty percent or lower,” writes McHenry [John McHenry, partner and vice president of Ayres, McHenry and Associates].

“And a quarter of voters — 27 percent overall, including 26 percent of Republicans, 24 percent of Independents, and 30 percent of Democrats — think the maximum percentage should be no more than ten percent.””
Twenty-seven percent of respondents said income taxes should be capped at 10 percent of an individual’s income; 16 percent of respondents said fifteen, 22 percent of respondents said twenty, 14 percent of respondents said thirty, just 4 percent of respondents said forty, and 3 percent of respondents said fifty percent or more. Thirteen percent expressed no opinion.
