POLL: Less Than One-Third Of Americans (29%) Approve Of The Trump Tax Plan
According to a new Quinnipiac poll, conducted between Nov. 29th and Dec. 4th, less than one-third of Americans (29%) approve of the Trump-Republican tax plan the House and Senate are presently ramming though congress.
In the poll 64 percent of the people surveyed said the bill would benefit the wealthy while a mere 24 percent said they believe the middle class would benefit the most.
Additionally, 41% believed the plan would raise their taxes.
In a separate question 47 percent that the Democratic Party can do a superior job handling taxes while 39 percent believe the GOP would be better equipped.
Here are a few other choice tidbits gleaned from the poll that should prove troubling for Trump and his Republican party come the 2018 elections...
• Donald Trump's approval rating languishes at 35 percent.
• 56 percent believe that Trump is not fit to be president (tying his all-time low score).
• 59 percent think that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election.
• 50 percent that people polled said the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 presidential elections.
• 56 percent say that Democrats can do a better job "fighting for the working class" opposed to 34 percent for Republicans.
• 51 percent that Democrats can do a better job "representing your values" compared to 37 percent.
• 50 percent would like the Democrats to win control of the House of Representatives in the 2018 elections while only 36 percent would like the GOP to maintain control.
• 51 say that they would like Democrats to win control of the U.S. Senate in 2018 opposed to 37 percent who would like Republicans to remain in power.
These numbers are stunning considering the fact that the unemployment rate hovers around the 4 percent mark and the stock market is at an all time high at 24,180. Imagine if these positive numbers weren't a factor in the minds of the people Quinnipiac polled.
