Only 5 percent of respondents said they expect low income Americans to benefit the most from Republicans' efforts to overhaul the US tax code.
The GOP tax overhaul benefits the wealthy the most, according to 64 percent of United States voters, while 24 percent say the tax plan benefits the middle class and 5 percent say it benefits low-income people, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday.
A Gallup poll found that 29% of people surveyed approved of the GOP tax bill, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), while 56% disapproved. Of that, 41 percent of voters who identify as Republican said they disapprove.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans - 63 percent - disapprove of the way Trump is handling the issue of sexual harassment and sexual assault, with 22 percent disapproving.
Just 39 percent of Republicans say they think Congress should look into the allegations against Trump, compared to 86 percent of Democrats who feel the same way.
The poll was conducted from November 29 to December 4 among 1,747 adults. For results based on the total sample of national adults, the margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level.
"I view it as a tremendous bill for jobs and the middle class".
Tuesday, President Trump had lunch with Senate Republicans at the White House to discuss the recently Senate-passed tax overhaul bill. Thirty-nine percent of Democrats report following the topic very closely - well above the 28 percent of Republicans and 25 percent of independents.
The Senate version would drop the highest personal income tax rate from 39.6 percent to 38.5 percent and, like the House bill, almost double the standard deduction, according to the Associated Press.
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.
