  • 60 percent of Republicans support the plan, 15 percent approve it, and 26 percent are undecided. 

The poll shows disapproval among all other breakdowns by party, gender, education, age, and racial groups, according to the poll report.

Other opinions about the Republican tax plan expressed in the poll:

  • 61 percent say the wealthy would be the plan's main beneficiaries, 24 percent said the middle class would benefit most, and 6 percent said those with the lowest incomes would be the main beneficiaries.
  • 16 percent said they believed the plan would reduce their taxes, while 35 percent said they believed it would increase their taxes, and 36 percent believe it will have little effect.
  • 52 percent do not believe the tax plan will lead to more jobs, while 36 percent believe it will produce more jobs.
  • 49 percent believe that lowering the corporate tax rate is a bad idea, while 45 percent favor the idea.

  • 59 percent believe that dropping the deduction for state and local income taxes is a bad idea, while 30 percent disagree.
  • 48 percent favor eliminating the estate tax, while 43 percent think it is a bad idea.

"The sentiment from voters: The GOP tax plan is a great idea, if you are rich. Otherwise, you're out of luck," said Tim Malloy, Quinnipiac University poll's assistant director.

The poll was conducted from Nov. 7 to Nov. 13 in a survey of 1,577 voters around the U.S., with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
