Twenty-six percent of Americans approve of the Republican tax reform plan, while 47 percent disapprove, a new Monmouth University poll reveals.
The poll was conducted Dec. 10-12 – before the final version of the Republican bill was released.
Here's how the survey, released on Monday, breaks down:
- 50 percent say their taxes will go up under the new plan; 14 percent believe they will go down and 25 percent believe their taxes will stay the same.
- 55 percent of Republicans favor the proposed plan; 16 percent disapprove.
- 7 percent of Democrats support the GOP tax plan, 72 percent disapprove.
- 20 percent of independents favor the plan; 53 percent disapprove.
- 11 percent of all those polled say President Donald Trump's policies have benefited middle class families a lot; 25 percent say a little; 53 percent say not at all.
"Right now, the American middle class is not particularly impressed with the current administration's performance on bread and butter issues," said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute.
"A major task for congressional Republicans and President Trump will be convincing these voters that they will benefit from the plan,"
The poll surveyed 806 adults. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
