Repub K-County Prefers Demo Tax Plan?

As the clever bloggers and commenters here at HBO have already noticed, there’s something about that Coeur d’Alene Press online poll that asks readers to pick which tax plan they prefer:

Republican plan: Use current state surplus and increase the sales tax to provide some property tax relief
 30.2%

Democrat plan: Use surplus and revenue from out-of-state property owners to provide some property tax relief
 69.8%

Total Votes: 2484

DFO: The Democratic plan outpolling the Republican plan in one of the most Republican counties of Red Meat Idaho? I don’t think so. Sounds like people are working the phones to skew a poll that’s already as unscientific as can be.
