Poll shows significant popular support for budget


NZ Business Council for Sustainable Development has the results of a nationwide survey.

Twice as many New Zealanders approve of the 2010 Budget overall than disapprove.
New personal income tax rates have overwhelming support – ranging from 51% to
78% across the four tax brackets, according to the first major nationwide survey on
the Budget.

The GST hike does not command such broad support with 57% against.
