Poll: 63% Oppose Junk Food Taxes

(Chicago) – May 6, 2012. Poll: U.S. voters are in no mood for any sort of taxes, even “sin taxes”. Support for “Sin taxes” on junk food and soft drinks has sunk to its lowest level, narrowing low-hanging revenue raising option by state and local governments to close budget holes.

Junk food taxes slump to junk.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 18% of American Adults support sin taxes on soda and junk food, down from 33% in March 2010. 

Sixty-three percent (63%) are opposed.

The survey of 1,000 Adults nationwide was conducted by Public Opinion Research on April 25-26, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports.

The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
