A poll released by supporters of the one-cent sales-tax proposal before Arizona voters shows a majority support it. With the May 18th election just 64 days away, nearly 6 in 10 likely special election voters say they will vote yes on Proposition 100, a three-year, one-cent increase to Arizona’s sales tax meant to protect education, public safety and health care. A telephone survey of 506 likely voters, conducted in late February by veteran polling group Moore Information, used the exact ballot language voters will encounter in the upcoming election.
