Poll: ‘Likely voters’ do not like the Marketplace Fairness Act
The poll comes from July surveys for conservative groups the National Taxpayers Union and R Street. The results show approximately 57 percent of likely voters oppose changing how states collect sales taxes from Internet purchases, while one-third indicated support for changing the system. Mercury found that suburban voters, women, and independent voters oppose the measure. In a separate poll specifically of Republican voters, 66 percent opposed changing the system. Politico notes that these polling numbers are “relatively consistent” with a Gallup poll taken in June of this year.
