In 1991, California imposed a snack tax (a sales tax on snack food) in an attempt to help balance the state budget. A proposed alternative tax was a 12-per-pack increase in the cigarette tax. In a poll of 602 randomly selected California registered voters, 445 responded that they would have preferred the cigarette tax increase to the snack tax (Reno Gazette-Journal, August 26, 1991). Estimate the true proportion of California registered voters who preferred the cigarette tax increase; use a 95% con- fidence interval.
