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

Democrats independents oppose GOP tax plan poll

Another poll from Quinnipiac University also found that 29% of those surveyed approved of the TCJA, while 53% disapproved.

Almost two-thirds of American voters believe the GOP tax plan favors the rich, a new poll found.

In a separate question, American voters say 61-to-34 percent that the tax plan favors the rich at the expense of the middle class.

Among Republican respondents, 67 percent approve and 10 disapprove of the plan, while 6 percent of Democrats approve and 84 disapprove.

The Gallup poll's margin of error is plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Respondents, however, were more split over how they would personally be impacted by the high-profile legislation.

President Trump said the Republican tax plan is "so popular", despite public opinion polls which show very low support.


Trump and the GOP are failing to convince anyone that their tax bill is a plan that is targeted toward the middle-class.

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

President Trump's job approval rating was at 35 percent, with 58 percent saying they disapproved.

Forty-one percent of voters said they expect their taxes to go up under the GOP plan, 32 percent said they think it would not have much impact and 20 percent said they think it would reduce their taxes.

The poll was conducted between November 29 and December 4 and included phone interviews with 1,508 voters with a margin of error of 3.1 percent. Only 25 percent said Trump shouldn't be investigated.

As the Senate version of the Republican tax reform bill made its way through the legislative process this past weekend, Gallup documented a highly partisan imbalance in Americans' reactions. The Senate approved its plan - which includes a measure to repeal the Affordable Care Act mandate - by a vote of 51-49 early Saturday.

The House and Senate bills must now be reconciled in conference committee before Republicans' tax overhaul effort can be signed into law.
