Voters' opposition to a corporate tax rate cut has increased, according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday. 

The results:

  • 41 percent of voters said that a corporate tax rate cut should not be part of the tax reform plan proposed by President Donald Trump and Republican leaders.
  • 39 percent said the cut should be part of the plan.

The 41-percent amount is up from 38 percent that opposed the cut in a Politico/Morning Consult poll, Politico's report said.

Breaking down the results along party lines:

  • 59 percent of Republicans support the cut.
  • 55 percent of Democrats oppose it.
  • 42 percent of independent voters oppose the cut.

Support remains steady for the tax reform plan overall, unchanged since a similar poll in October.

  • 48 percent of voters "strongly support" or "somewhat support" the tax reform plan.
  • 37 percent oppose the plan.

Breaking down the results by party affiliation:

  • 83 percent of Republican voters support it.
  • 24 percent of Democrats support it.
  • 39 percent of independent voters support the plan.

The corporate rate cut proposal would decrease the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent, Politico reported.

The online survey was conducted among 1,990 voters from Oct. 26 to Oct. 30 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
