The Polling Report

A new Quinnipiac poll finds American voters disapprove of the Republican tax plan 53% to 29%. By a 61% to 34% margin, voters say the plan benefits the wealthy at the expense of the middle class.

Meanwhile, President Trump’s approval rate is 35% to 58% and voters think he’s unfit to be president by a 56% to 40% margin.

Said pollster Tim Malloy: “Deeply unpopular and manifestly unfit for the job. That’s the harsh assessment of President Trump, whose tax plan is considered built for the rich at the expense of the rest.”

Gallup, as seen in the picture above, finds similar devastatingly unpopular numbers for the tax bill, and also finds President Trump’s weekly job approval dropped to 35%, matching the lowest weekly average of his tenure so far.

A new PRRI survey finds 40% Americans say that, based on what they have heard or read, President Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 56% of the public disagrees. Women express greater support for impeachment than men. Women are evenly divided over whether Trump should be impeached — 48% favor, 48% oppose — while just 31% of men favor this action.

A new Politico/Morning Consult poll finds 63% say members of Congress should should avoid a government shutdown at all costs. Only 18% of voters surveyed say members should allow a temporary government shutdown if it helps them achieve their policy goals. The remaining 19% of voters are undecided.

A new Harvard IOP poll of America’s 18- to 29-year-olds finds that 67% of young Americans are more fearful than hopeful about America’s future.  President Trump’s approval rate is now just 25% with young people, having fallen seven points since Spring.

Less than one year before the 2018 midterm elections, likely young American voters cite preference for Democratic control of Congress, 65% to 33%.

  1. As expected the senate tax bill is unpopular, decidedly so as they have failed to counter the perception that the bill is yet another big tax cut for the rich. And Mitch McConnell’s master plan of secrecy and no time to study the bill has failed every bit as badly as it did with the Trumpcare bills. Suspect disapproval of the senate bill will morph into hatred as the details become apparent and the Republicans attempt to stick the house and senate versions together into one horrible and sad excuse for “tax reform”. Also suspect much of the Republican support for the bill is of the “knee jerk” variety to support the party regardless of what evil they are doing and will fade a bit given time.
