Interesting. I thought TABOR was one that would never have a chance of being eliminated.

Colorado voters leaning toward approving the elimination of state spending caps under TABOR, poll finds

Colorado voters are leaning toward approving the elimination of state spending caps under the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights in November’s election, according to a new poll. But supporters of the ballot question might not want to celebrate quite yet.

A survey conducted by Republican firm Magellan Strategies found that 54% of likely 2019 general election voters intend to approve Proposition CC, while 30% said they were going to reject the question. And 15% said they were undecided.

The telephone and online survey of 486 likely 2019 voters was conducted between Aug. 5 and 7. The projected outcome of the ballot question was within the poll’s 4.5% margin of error.

But Flaherty cautions that, typically, support for ballot measures needs to begin polling in the high 50% or 60% range to be successful, and if people don’t understand the question they could reject it or simply not cast a vote.

Colorado voters supporting less direct democracy! "We can't be trusted with the vote on new taxes!" "We defer to our elected legislators!" "Tax away please!" We work 114 days a year to feed government, we want it to go to 150 days a year!

Shriek of outrage duly noted. However, direct democracy and spending on public goods don't work well together.

Did you mean to say the crummy voters won't hand over the money to fund my desires?
You remind me of the people who move to Colorado from high tax states like California, "We love what they are doing, but we just can't afford to live there anymore because the taxes are so high."

No. I said exactly what I meant to.

If I thought taxes should be lower, would I make the argument that direct democracy doesn't adequately fund public goods?
