Reuters: “Fewer than a third of Americans support Donald Trump’s tax-cut plan, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Tuesday, as the U.S. president went to Capitol Hill looking for Republican backing for his proposal to slash tax rates for individuals and companies.”
- Only 28% of Americans support the Republican tax cut plan. 41% oppose it and 31% said they don’t know.
- More than half of the adults surveyed in the poll agreed that “cutting taxes for the poor is more important than reducing the federal deficit,” with 68 percent of Democrats and 47 percent of Republicans in accord with that statement, the poll showed.
- Only 15 percent of registered voters said Republicans in Congress should prioritize tax reform over other issues.
- Only 56% of Republicans and only 9% of Democrats support the Republican tax cut plan.
- Of those who had heard of the plan, 14 percent said it would cut their taxes, while 30 percent said it would increase their taxes. Another 35 percent said their taxes would not change and 20 percent said they did not know how it would impact them.
