GOP tax plan is deeply unpopular, according to new Quinnipiac poll

A Democratic aide carries a chart past the U.S. Senate chamber that senators used to argue against the Republican tax bill on Capitol Hill in Washington Friday night Dec. 1 2017

Sixty-four percent of those surveyed said they believe the legislation would benefit the wealthy the most, 24 percent said it would benefit the middle class the most and 5 percent said it would benefit those with low incomes the most.

A mere 7 percent of Democrats and just 25 percent of independents polled Friday and Saturday as the GOP plan moved toward its party-line approval say they approve of the proposed changes to the federal tax code, contrasted with 70 percent of Republicans.

A Gallup poll found that 29% of people surveyed approved of the GOP tax bill, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), while 56% disapproved.

Although voters, on the whole, expressed negative takes on the GOP-backed proposal, which would make sweeping changes to the tax code, Republicans were much more supportive of the effort with almost seven in 10 saying they approve of the plan.

Nearly two-thirds of Americans - 63 percent - disapprove of the way Trump is handling the issue of sexual harassment and sexual assault, with 22 percent disapproving.

Trump told reporters Tuesday that he views the tax plan as a "tremendous bill for jobs and for the middle class".

Trump has criticized Franken on Twitter, an irony that was not lost on the poll respondents: 73 percent said it was hypocritical of Trump to criticize men accused of sexual harassment, and only 16 percent said he had a right to do so.

President Donald Trump's approval rating sits at 35 percent, the poll found, down 3 points from November. Accusations involve members of both the Republican and Democratic parties - including President Donald Trump, who has denied the allegations.

Here is a link to more details on the breakdown of the survey, including various subgroups. Fifty-six percent, meanwhile, disapproved. “Further, intensity seems to be on the side of the opposition, with Democrats paying closer attention to news about the tax proposals and appearing more unified in their opposition to the plan than Republicans are in support of it.”.

"The plan will increase their taxes, 41 percent of voters say, while 20 percent say the plan will reduce their taxes and 32 percent say the plan will not have much impact on their taxes".
