Thirty-nine percent of voters said that they strongly or somewhat support the GOP tax bill passed by the House, while 31 percent oppose it and the rest are undecided, according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll released on Wednesday.

Support for the bill went up slightly to 41 percent and opposition dropped to 29 percent after those surveyed were told about key details of the plan.

Republicans in the Senate are expected to bring their version of the tax bill to the floor after Thanksgiving.

Other results from the survey include:

  • 36 percent expect to pay more federal, state and local taxes under the plan, even though the GOP says the plan is a tax cut for most Americans. Twenty percent said they would pay less taxes under the plan and 19 percent said their taxes would stay about the same. Twenty-five percent weren't sure or gave no opinion.
  • 44 percent of those who expect to pay more said their income is $100,000 or more. Among those with annual income of between $50,000 to $100,000, 39 percent said they would pay more, while 33 percent of those earning less than $50,000 expect a tax hike.
  • Among Republican supporters, 69 percent back the House bill and 10 percent oppose it. Among Democrats, 48 percent oppose the legislation and 24 percent support it. Thirty-two percent of Independents said they back the plan and 28 percent oppose it.
  • Among Democrats, 47 percent expect that they will get a tax hike, while only 29 percent of Republicans thought their taxes would increase under the plan.
  • The most popular part of the bill is boosting the child tax credit, which is supported by 64 percent of those polled.
  • On the other hand, 35 percent said the provision largely eliminating the state and local tax deduction while maintaining a property tax deduction capped at $10,000, should not be in the bill, while 32 percent support it.
  • The plan to cut the corporate tax rate to 20 percent from 35 percent also is opposed by 38 percent, while only 35 percent back it.

The poll of 2,586 registered voters was conducted between Nov. 16-19. It has an error margin of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
