  • Democrats independents oppose GOP tax plan poll

Twenty-nine percent of Americans approve and 53 percent disapprove of the Republican plan to overhaul the USA tax code, a Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday indicated.

Almost two-thirds of American voters believe the GOP tax plan favors the rich, a new poll found.

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.

Sixty-seven percent of Republicans tell pollsters they approve of the plan - the only party, gender, education, age or racial group surveyed that gives it a thumbs up. 4, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

Respondents, however, were more split over how they would personally be impacted by the high-profile legislation.

As President Donald Trump sees it, the GOP tax plan is growing in popularity.

"The plan will increase their taxes, 41 percent of voters say, while 20 percent say the plan will reduce their taxes and 32 percent say the plan will not have much impact on their taxes".

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 Senate, in turn, approved its own almost $1.5 trillion tax overhaul bill Saturday - legislation which Republicans contended would benefit Americans of all incomes and jumpstart the economy.

Trump told reporters Tuesday that he views the tax plan as a "tremendous bill for jobs and for the middle class".

Of independents, 25 percent approved and 56 percent disapproved.

The poll was conducted from November 29 to December 4 among 1,747 adults.

Despite the distaste for the bill among the public, Republicans passed legislation through the House and Senate.

It would also essentially end the coverage mandate included in the Affordable Care Act and allow drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

The House voted 222-192 Monday to approve a motion to go to conference with the Senate on the tax overhaul bill.
