Gas Tax Repeal seen failing in poll, expert blames ballot language

A new poll released by the Public Policy Institute of California finds that voters are more likely to reject Proposition 6, which would repeal the 2017 gas tax increase voted in by California lawmakers. 52% of likely voters said they would vote no, while 39% saying they would vote in favor of the repeal.

Dan Schnur, political expert and professor at the Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism at USC, says the unexpected result is probably due to the way the proposition is described in the ballot.

“The description is as follows: ‘Eliminate certain road repair and transportation funding. Requires certain fuel taxes and vehicle fees to be approved of by the electorate.’ So, if you ask that question as opposed to, ‘Do you want your gasoline taxes to go down?’ not surprisingly, you get a much different answer.”

Dan Schnur was a guest on McIntyre in the Morning.
