Poll shows Proposal 1 in trouble

LANSING (WKZO) -- A new poll from Public Sector Consultants shows backers of Proposal 1 on the August ballot might have a steep uphill climb to get it passed. The survey found just 31-percent of voters are in favor of the ballot question, which would dedicate part of the state's Use Tax for local governments to replace revenue lost with the repeal of the personal property tax.

The PPT is paid by businesses on equipment, and pollsters are under fire from supporters for only talking to general election voters, not those who plan to vote in the primary. Backers also say the pollsters did not read the full ballot language.
