Americans Still Don’t Like the GOP Tax Plan

Jonathan Ernst

If Republicans are going to sell the public on their tax overhaul before the midterm elections, they've got a long way to go. From the Quinnipiac University National Poll released Thursday:

“Voters disapprove 52 - 32 percent of the recently enacted Republican tax plan. Support is 76 - 7 percent among Republicans. White voters with no college degree are divided, with 41 percent approving of the tax plan and 38 percent disapproving. White men are divided at 46 percent approve of the plan and 43 percent disapprove. Every other listed group disapproves.”

“The tax plan will increase their taxes, 33 percent of voters say, as 24 percent say the plan will reduce their taxes and 37 percent say it will not have much impact.”

“The wealthy will benefit most from this plan, 66 percent of American voters say, while 22 percent say the middle class will benefit most and 4 percent say low income people will benefit most.”
