The Independence Institute, a conservative think-tank, announced results from a survey that it says shows support for changing TABOR among Colorado voters is relatively low. We aren't inclined to take those numbers at face value, because any survey commissioned by a group that is not non-partisan and unbiased should be taken with a grain of salt (this is the same reason you don't automatically believe drug companies who say that "our studies show this drug to be safe"). If TABOR wasn't a problem, then legislators on both sides of the aisle wouldn't be working to fix it; politicians don't try to repeal tax breaks unless they absolutely must, because the political cost of trying to do it is too steep.
However, what the survey does show is that Colorado's elected officials aren't doing a very good job at getting across the problems that TABOR has created. While we certainly understand that this is no easy task - heck, TABOR is more complicated than the dewey decimal system - legislators clearly need to work harder to make the problems clear.
We are somewhat familiar with polling data and how to use it, and those low number for TABOR changes reflect as much a misunderstanding of TABOR as it does a dislike of changing it. If the questions were worded in such a way that they presented the tax break as the primary benefit (for example: "Would you like to see tax breaks repealed in Colorado?) then obviously the answer is going to be NO. But if the question was, "Would you like to see TABOR changed?" then most people wouldn't be able to fairly answer the question.
We once heard a good analogy of TABOR that compared it to low lake levels; there's a version of that comparison available here from Senator Sue Windels.
