Republicans favor a flat tax over Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 tax plan by a wide margin. However, neither tax reform proposal draws the support of a majority of Americans, a new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows.

Among Republicans, Cain’s plan is viewed unfavorably by a margin of 50 to 41 percent. The idea of a flat tax, currently pushed by Texas Gov. Rick Perry, is viewed favorably by GOP members 56 to 41 percent.

Overall, Cain’s plan is viewed unfavorably by a margin of 56 to 36 percent, with Democrats opposing it 61 to 35 percent and independents 58 to 35 percent. A flat tax polls about even with 48 percent having an unfavorable opinion compared to 47 who view it favorably. Among Democrats, the margin is 56 to 40 percent unfavorable and independents 48 to 46 percent.
