Trump Says GOP Tax Plan Is Becoming 'More Popular.' Is He Right?

Democrats independents oppose GOP tax plan poll

Seventy percent of Republicans approved, while just 7% of Democrats were in favor.

Speaking to reporters before a lunch with several Republican senators, Trump said the bill which passed the Senate last week would soon make it out of a conference committee and head to his desk for signing.

A Gallup poll showed 29% of Americans approve of the bill, while 56% disapprove.

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

Meanwhile, American voters give President Donald Trump a negative 35-to-58 percent job approval rating, which has slipped three points compared to the 38-to-55 percent approval rating Trump got in a November 21 Quinnipiac University poll. That was in 1986, with President Ronald Reagan spearheading the legislation.

If there is a bright spot in these data for Republicans, Gallup says, it is that public uncertainty about the plan is highest among Republicans (14 percent) and independents (19 percent) - two groups that might break relatively positively toward the law as they learn more about it, thus nudging overall approval a bit higher.

Trump has criticized Franken on Twitter, an irony that was not lost on the poll respondents: 73 percent said it was hypocritical of Trump to criticize men accused of sexual harassment, and only 16 percent said he had a right to do so.

While congressional Republicans have spearheaded this tax overhaul movement, the survey revealed that more voters (47%) think Democrats would do a better job of handling taxes than Republicans (39%).
