POLL: Overwhelming Opposition to Gas Tax Karen Spiegel for Riverside County Supervisor

POLL: Overwhelming Opposition to Gas Tax Karen Spiegel for Riverside County Supervisor

I’ve heard rumors for months that a poll has been conducted in the Riverside County Supervisor election to replace John Tavaglione in District 2.

A limited copy of the poll has finally landed in my hands. I’m glad to report that Gas Tax Karen can be found basically in last place, leading only William Martinez (who??) and Councimember Eugene Montanez, who has yet to file his candidacy papers with the Registrar of Voters, and according to many politicos, has completely dropped out of the race.

Gas Tax Karen is in a difficult spot to recover from, especially while she’s facing a recall and backlash from the community for her support of SB1 which is one of the largest tax increases in California history.

SB1, a bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, increases gas taxes by $.12 per gallon and raises vehicle registration fees up to $175 additional dollars. On March 17, 2017, Gas Tax Karen signed a letter supporting the tax on behalf of the city of Corona (click here to view).

I hear there’s more polling data out there, but for now, it’s all I have. Check back soon, as I’ll post if I receive more info.

Here’s what it says:

*’Gas Tax Karen’ was not how poll questions were phrased. Just how I’m reporting it here. This is ‘GasTaxKaren.com after all.
