Sample on raising taxes from the 2008 National Annenberg Election Studies.

Description

The 2008 National Annenberg Election Studies (NAES) item (CBb01) asked: "I'm going to read you some options about federal income taxes. Please tell me which one comes closest to your view on what we should be doing about federal income taxes: (1) Cut taxes; (2) Keep taxes as they are; (3) Raise taxes if necessary; (4) None of these; (998) Don't know; (999) No answer. Category (3) was turned into a 'raise taxes response,' categories (1) and (2) were combined into a 'do not raise taxes' response. The original item from the phone and online surveys contains 50,483 respondents. This sample mimics a typical national survey. It contains at least 5 respondents from each state but is otherwise a random sample.
