CHQ readers weren’t buying Democrat Senator Harry Reid’s claim that Mill Romney hadn’t “paid any taxes for 10 years.” And for which the Chairman of the Republican National Committee labeled Reid a “dirty liar.”
59% of CHQ readers said Reid should “put up or shut up” (to-date he hasn’t) and 32% said it didn’t matter whether Governor Romney paid taxes or not, if he did so legally. Only 2% of respondents were buying Harry Reid’s spin.
We asked you: Harry Reid says of Mitt Romney: “"The word's out that he hasn't paid any taxes for 10 years." Your response?
Here is how you responded:
59% As Romney replied, Reid should “put up or shut up.” Otherwise, this is just political calumny.
32% No matter if Mitt paid no taxes, if he did so legally. Nobody is obligated to pay taxes that are not owed under the tax code.
6% This is why Romney should release his taxes—to deprive the Democrats of what apparently is their only effective campaign issue.
2% It probably is true, or close to the truth, and that’s why Romney will not release his taxes.
1% No opinion.
