Poll: California voters support taxes on cigarettes, commercial properties
Los Angeles Daily News

The Legislature couldn’t manage to raise taxes this year, but a new Public Policy Institute of California poll to be released today shows large majorities of Californians favor some of the tax hikes Democrats wanted.

The survey found two-thirds of likely voters, including a majority of Republicans, support increasing taxes on cigarettes and more than half want to overhaul Proposition 13 and start taxing commercial properties at current market rates.
