Last week President Trump rolled out the framework for his tax reform plan and sent it to Capitol Hill to be made into legislation.
According to a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll released this week, voters across the board are open to the plan and support many of its key elements.
Republican tax plan polls well: After hearing about a number of the bill's components, 59% of voters say they support a bill that included those provisions, while just 20% oppose.
Most of the individual components receive majority or plurality support. The most popular provision is doubling the standard deduction that Americans can claim on their tax returns, from $12,000 to $24,000. 62% of Americans say this should be in the bill, while 15% do not.
The least popular component is no longer taxing overseas profits of U.S. companies. 31% say this should be in the bill, while 41% don't.
But despite good polling on the plan, it is still facing some opposition. Republican Senator Rand Paul has come out against the current proposal, arguing it creates a tax hike on the middle class.
This is a GOP tax plan? Possibly 30% of middle class gets a tax hike? I hope the final details are better than this. https://t.co/lcjkI4YRz8— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) October 2, 2017
