Support Is Still Very Low For The Trump/GOP Tax Reform
These charts show the results of a new Politico / Morning Consult Poll -- done between June 22nd and 24th of a national sample of 1,989 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 2 points.
When they passed their tax reform plan, the Republicans called it a middle class tax cut -- and they were sure that would bring voters flocking to the polls to vote for them. But it was exposed as nothing more than a tax cut for the rich. Trump said the people would come around once they saw all the extra money in their paychecks. That hasn't happened either.
It is now several months later, and the percentage who at least somewhat support the tax reform remains very low -- about 37%. That's because very few have seen more money in their pay checks -- only about 25%. Republicans and rich people may like the tax reform, but no one else does. This is NOT going to help the Republicans in November!
