Poll: NJ voters say proposed tax cut can wait

TRENTON - A majority of New Jersey voters appear willing to wait for a tax cut.

A Quinnipiac University poll out today shows 52 percent of respondents agree with the Democrats' decision to wait-and-see if the state can afford the cut. But 39 percent agree with Gov. Chris Christie's call for the Legislature to vote on the cut immediately.

The 10 percent tax cut would cost more than $1 billion a year when fully phased in. Christie says residents would spend the extra money, boosting the state economy. Democrats say they'll sign off only if revenue collections meet Christie's targets. They've fallen short so far.
