SEATTLE - A new KING 5 News poll finds that by a 3-to-1 margin, Washington State voters would pass Tim Eyman's latest anti-tax initiative.

Initiative 1053 calls for re-establishing the two-thirds vote requirement for the Legislature to pass tax increases.

The exclusive KING 5 News poll conducted by SurveyUSA found that the measure would pass, 55 percent to 18 percent, with 26 percent of likely voters not certain how they will vote.

The poll found that voters are not as clear on three other statewide ballot measures.

Initiative 1098 would create a state income tax for individuals making over $200,000 and married couples making over $400,000. If the vote were held today, 41 percent of likely voters say they would be certain to vote yes and 33 percent are certain to vote no.

Initiative 1107 would roll back new state taxes on soda, bottled water, candy and some processed meat. It has 42 percent of likely voters saying they are certain to vote yes, 34 percent certain to vote no and 24 percent not certain.

Referendum 52 would authorize bonds and continue a sales tax on bottled water to pay for projects to increase energy efficiency in public schools. Thirty-four percent are certain to vote yes, 42 percent are certain to vote no and 24 percent are not certain how they will vote.
