Two new polls released Tuesday on the Republican overhaul of the federal tax code showed similar majority levels of disapproval.

In a Gallup survey, 29 percent of respondents approved of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, while 56 percent disapproved.

Another poll from Quinnipiac University also found that 29 percent approved of the TCJA, while 53 percent disapproved.

The Quinnipiac survey also found 64 percent of respondents said the bill would mostly benefit the wealthy, while 24 percent said the middle class would get the most benefit.

The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

In the Gallup survey, a breakdown by political affiliation showed the overhaul has strong leanings by political party:

  • Of GOP voters, 70 percent approve.
  • Of independents, 25 percent approved and 56 percent disapproved.
  • The plan hit a brick wall with Democrats, among whom only 7 percent approved.

The Gallup poll's margin of error is plus or minus 4 percentage points.
