In the past week, support among Republican voters for the House of Representatives' tax reform plan has declined, according to a Wednesday Politico/Morning Consult poll.

The poll's results:

  • 59 percent of Republican voters now support the plan, down from 66 percent the previous week.
  • 12 percent of GOP voters are against the plan, up from 9 percent.
  • 28 percent of GOP voters are undecided, up from 25 percent.

Among all voters, support also declined, according to the poll:

  • 36 percent of voters overall support the bill, down from 39 percent.
  • 36 percent of voters are against the bill, up from 31 percent.

A majority of Democrats remain against the bill — 58 percent — and that number has increased as well, from 52 percent the previous week.

After poll voters were read a list of provisions in the tax reform plan, Republican voters who support it increased to 62 percent, which is still a decline from the 69 percent who supported it after being read the provisions a week earlier, Politico reported.

Few of those polled believe that the Senate should pass the House tax reform bill with no changes.

  • 24 percent said the Senate should pass the House bill with minor changes.
  • 15 percent said the Senate should make major changes.
  • 19 percent said the Senate should start over from scratch.
  • 8 percent said the Senate should pass the bill "as is."

Another 8 percent said the Senate should not pass any tax reform bill.

In the poll, 1,994 registered voters were surveyed from Nov. 21 to 25, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points, according to Politico.
