Today's the day for the public to decide on Governor Jan Brewer's miracle cure for the state budget: Proposition 100.

Brewer's been pushing for the one-percent sales-tax increase since the doom and gloom of Arizona's finances set in last summer.

Brewer's been tugging on the heartstrings of the public in her campaign to pass Prop. 100, saying it's needed to protect funding for things like education, public safety, and health and human services.

Opponents of the measure, mainly Republicans, say it's absurd to tax people more when the economy is in the tank.

People are heading to the polls right now to weigh in, and we want to know what you think: Will Brewer's plan get the public nod of approval?

Let us know what you think -- and see the results of yesterday's poll -- after the jump.

Yesterday's poll question: Is Robin Lopez's return to action enough to contain the Los Angeles Lakers big men?

-76 percent say yes.

-11 percent say no.

-13 percent say unless Kobe Bryant gets hurt, the Suns don't stand a chance.

Here is your morning poll:
