Sixty-four percent of American voters say the Republican tax plan benefits the wealthy, compared to 24 percent who believe it helps the middle class and 5 percent who say it aids low-income people, a new Quinnipiac University poll reveals.

Highlights from the poll:

  • 67 percent of Republicans approve of the plan, while 10 percent disapprove.
  • 6 percent of Democrats favor the tax reform legislation, compared to 84 percent who don't.
  • 27 percent of independents approve of the plan, while 54 percent disapprove.
  • 41 percent of all those polled believe the tax plan will increases their taxes, while 20 percent say it will reduce taxes and 32 percent say it will not have much impact on their taxes.
  • 35 percent approve of the job President Donald Trump is doing compared to 58 percent who disapprove.
  • 56 percent say Trump is not fit to serve as president, compared to 40 percent who say he is.
  • 12 percent approve of the way Congress is handling its job, compared to 80 percent who disapprove.
  • 37 percent of those polled say if the elections were held today, they would want the Republican Party to win keep control of the Senate, compared to 51 percent who favor the Democrats gaining the majority.

"Deeply unpopular and manifestly unfit for the job. That's the harsh assessment of President Donald Trump, whose tax plan is considered built for the rich at the expense of the rest," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

The poll, conducted Nov. 29 to Dec. 4, surveyed 1,508 voters. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
