A majority of Americans are skeptical of the Republican Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, with 53 percent predicting they will not see a reduction in their taxes and the same majority saying the reform will not help dramatically help the economy, according to a USA Today poll.

Also, just 32 percent of the registered voters polled support the Republican tax plans, while 48 percent oppose it, the poll found.

There might be some inherent political bias in this poll, like so many of those presented before the 2016 presidential election which favored Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.

Support for tax reform and faith in its purpose(s) remain strong with Republicans: 71 percent of GOP registered voters polled support it and just 12 percent oppose. Also, 66 percent of Republicans predict they will receive a tax cut and 75 percent believe the legislation will significantly boost the U.S. economy.

"I work for a small business . . . and the owner has talked about the things he could do if we enact this tax bill," Chad Dunlap, 42, told USA Today. "He could invest and have better equipment for our people, better income for our crews."

USA Today polled 1,000 registered voters Tuesday through Saturday, and the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
