Voters Say NO To Trump's Proposed Tax Cut Plan
Polls have shown that voters would support a plan to cut taxes. But they want those tax cuts targeted at middle class and low income people. And they don't like the tax cut plan proposed by Donald Trump.
A new poll shows that only 30% of the public supports Trump's plan, while 52% oppose it. Why? because they see the plan as benefitting the rich -- not the people that actually need a tax cut. About 63% say Trump's plan would benefit the wealthy the most, while only 27% think it would benefit the middle class and a scant 4% think it would benefit those with a low income.
That is simply not the kind of tax cut plan the public wants. While Trump's plan would benefit the rich and the corporations far more than anyone else, the public opposes that. About 55% say corporate taxes shouldn't be cut to 15%, and a whopping 77% say there should be no tax cut for the rich.
Americans want a tax cut. They just don't want the cuts proposed by Donald Trump.
These charts were made from information in a new Quinnipiac University Poll -- done between May 4th and 9th of a random national sample of 1,078 voters, with a 3 point margin of error.
