If you budgeted based on polls, you would...

be left with few options.

From Quinnipiac:

56 – 30 percent margin, voters would rather cut services than raise taxes to balance.


52 – 43 percent against layoffs for state workers;
56 – 32 percent in support of furloughs for state workers;
56 – 37 percent against reducing pension benefits for state workers;

78 – 19 percent against reducing state aid to public schools.
