Think you pay too much in taxes? Your answer probably has a lot to do with how you vote and how much you earn.

A CBS News-YouGov poll released Monday asked more than 1,600 U.S. adults: “In general, do you feel you pay more than your fair share in federal income taxes, less than your fair share, or is the amount you pay about right?”

A plurality of respondents, 47%, said what they’re paying is “about right.” Meanwhile, 45% said they feel that they’re paying more than their fair share.
