Approval for the tax reform bill that was signed into law before Christmas is on the rise, with more than half of Americans supporting it in a new survey.

The results of The New York Times poll conducted by SurveyMonkey show 51 percent of Americans support the law, an increase from 37 percent in December and 46 percent in January.

Other key results in the data:

  • Support from Republicans has risen from 80 percent in December to 89 percent in February.
  • Support from Democrats has risen from 8 percent in December to 19 percent in February.
  • 53 percent of Republicans and 19 percent of Democrats expect to receive an income tax cut because of the law.
  • 20 percent of Republicans and 9 percent of Democrats expect to receive a salary increase.
  • 13 percent of Republicans and 4 percent of Democrats expect to receive a bonus or an increased bonus.

"Public opinion is moving in the direction of this bill," SurveyMonkey chief research officer Jon Cohen told the Times. "Considering where it was, it is dramatically different."

Hundreds of companies have given their workers bonuses and/or wage increases because of the tax law.
