They asked Oregonians how many U.S. Senators we have and how many branches of government there are.

 

Pollster John Horvick has the results.

 

"47 percent of Oregonians didn't know we have two U.S. Senators.  And 50 percent could not name the three branches of government.  And 37 percent couldn't name one tax used to fund state government services."

 

33 percent named property taxes as a tax that funds state services, but Horvick says they don't.  Property taxes fund local services, not state ones.

 

Income taxes would be an example of a tax that funds state services.
