A new poll says Illinois voters are divided on what to do about the state’s financial problems.
The poll puts Illinois' deficit at $10 billion, and gives voters three choices for how to fix it: raise taxes, cut "waste and inefficiency," or both.
Cuts were the most popular answer at 45 percent. Just 11 percent favored only raising taxes; about a third said do both.
Paradoxically, when you ask voters about specific areas to cut, most are rejected. Support was strongest for spending on education, poor people, and individuals with disabilities.
