More than half of Americans believe the tax reform legislation that Republicans are working to finish will injure them financially, according to the latest Marist University poll.

What will be empirical in years to come — assuming Republicans are able to pass it — for every American is for now a matter of opinion about how the bill will impact them, and those differences are split along party lines.

The results, according to Marist:

  • 52 percent overall believe the bill would hurt them financially.
  • 30 percent overall believe the bill would help them.
  • 8 percent overall don't think the bill will make a difference either way.
  • 57 percent of Republicans think the bill would benefit them.
  • 78 percent of Democrats think the bill would hurt them.
  • 52 percent of Independents think the bill would hurt them.

In fact, 46 percent of Republicans surveyed think the tax reform bill mostly would benefit the middle class; 28 percent believe it helps wealthier Americans, according to Marist.

"If the objective of the GOP is to win a legislative battle, then the tax reform bill may still reach its goal," wrote Dr. Lee Miringoff, Director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion. "But, if the goal is to pass legislation that is supported by most Americans, the tax reform bill comes up very short."

Marist surveyed 1,267 adults 18 years of age and older residing in the  United States Dec. 4-7. The results for this subset are statistically significant within 3 percentage points.
