HELENA - A new poll finds that Montanans oppose a sales tax and don't want to ban abortion.
Mason-Dixon Polling & Research telephoned 625 registered voters last week and asked their opinions on various issues for Lee Newspapers of Montana. The margin of error is plus or minus 4 percentage points.
Sixty-four percent opposed replacing the state income tax with a sales tax, while 25 percent support it.
On the issue of amending the state constitution to ban abortion, 56 percent opposed it and 35 percent supported it.
A majority - 57 percent - would like to vote by mail while voters were split 43-42 when asked if states have the right to nullify and ignore federal laws they don't support.
