More Americans are siding with the GOP regarding tax cuts and the economy, according to a new survey.
The latest Associated Press-GFK poll shows 45 percent of the country opposes increasing taxes for the wealthy, while 54 percent support it.
And by a 46 to 41 percent margin, voters said they preferred to let Republicans steer the economy. It's the first time the GOP has had the edge on Democrats in a poll concerning this issue.
With less than 50 days until the midterm elections, the likeliest voters are leaning toward Republicans, 53 percent to 43 percent.
"Nothing's getting done," said Lisa Grimm, 52, an Independent from Chagrin Falls, Ohio, said. "Issues aren't being solved."
You shouldn't be penalized for making a good living," said Charles Ricotta, 55, a Democrat from Dunkirk, N.Y. "If you feel the government is cutting your throat, you might feel hesitant about hiring people."
