Ouch! MSN has a daily poll question

The MSN website has a daily poll question. Sometimes it's fluff (How many cars do you have), sometimes it's more substantive (Who do you trust more on the economy - Democrats or Republicans), and other times it's on a topic I don't care about.

Today's question is "Do you support raising taxes on those who make more than $50 million a year?" I clicked "Yes," and was pleasantly surprised by the current 68-26-6 split among Yes, No, and I don't know. I don't put any stock in the MSN poll since there's no scientific method to its selection of people polled, and I think if you log out and log back in, you can vote again. But it was an interesting snapshot of just how popular taxing high earners might be. The conversation seems to be changing at last, and the American people seem more receptive to having the winners in our society pay more to pull the economic wagon, instead of lounging in the back and complaining about the ride.

6. Yes, scroll down a bit

and look in the second column. Itís just a plain white box, doesnít really stand out.

5. Yes, for once, a decent response to the MSN poll.

However, I'm often amazed, surprised, and dismayed at how conservatively Trumpian most of their other politically-themed polls swing.
