Trump Says GOP Tax Plan Is Becoming 'More Popular.' Is He Right?

American voters aren't happy about the GOP's tax plan: poll

A Gallup poll found only 29 percent of Americans approve the Republican plan, while 56 percent oppose it.

The Quinnipiac survey also found 64 percent of respondents said the bill would mostly benefit the wealthy, while 24 percent said the middle class would get the most benefit.

Here is a link to more details on the breakdown of the survey, including various subgroups.

Forty-seven percent of women nationwide say they have been sexually assaulted, according to the poll, compared with 17 percent of men who say they have been sexually assaulted.

The telephone survey of 1,508 voters was conducted by Quinnipiac University from November 29 to December 4 as the Senate pushed through its tax-cut bill, setting up conference committee negotiations on a final version with the House.

Who Will the Republican Tax Plan Help
Poll: 29% of Americans approve of the GOP tax plan

"Deeply unpopular and manifestly unfit for the job".

This is part of the reason why voters want Democrats in control of Congress, "American voters say 50 - 36 percent, including 44 - 36 percent among independent voters that they would like the Democrats to win control of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018". Accusations involve members of both the Republican and Democratic parties - including President Donald Trump, who has denied the allegations. It seems to me that, in the age of negative partisanship, the GOP is making the best move they have. Now, Democrats hold an eight-percentage-point edge, 47 percent to 39 percent. With just 35 percent approval in the new Quinnipiac poll, he is the least popular first-year president since polling began.

Fifty-two percent of the voters surveyed say they are "embarrassed" to have Donald Trump as their president while 25 percent say they are "proud".

After a year in which the party has passed no major legislation despite holding majorities in both houses of congress, GOP lawmakers crave a victory before year's end, an accomplishment to gloat about during their upcoming break. While most other Americans say the opposite, 67 percent of Republicans support the effort, 73 percent say it helps the middle-class more than the wealthy, and 86 percent say it will boost jobs and economic growth.
