Online Poll of the Week

Check out the Economist’s poll on charging higher tax for the rich to address social equality. As it stands, results are spilt exactly down the middle, which is pretty rare (sorry to always be so bloody cynical but could this be a ploy to encourage voting?) Set up like a House of Commons debate, there is also a place to leave comments on the whole concept of higher tax for the wealthy.

Anyway, it’s an interesting one even if it has been done to death. Final results tomorrow.

One thought on “Online Poll of the Week

  1. The results: The motion ‘This house belives that the rich should pay higher taxes’ on this Economist online poll and debate resulted in 49% voting ‘no’ and 51% voting ‘yes.’ A very close run.
