Poll shows unhappiness with state budget deal
A new poll shows a large majority of Minnesotans aren't happy about how their elected leaders balanced the state budget this year. Two-thirds of the people polled say they're dissatisfied with the budget deal DFL Gov. Mark Dayton struck with the Republican controlled legislature. The poll also tested the popularity of various budget balancing proposals, including further spending cuts, as well as increasing tax revenue. The poll was conducted by Wilder Research on behalf of the Bush Foundation.
MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Peter Hutchinson, the president of the St. Paul-based Bush Foundation.
