"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".

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

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.

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