New Poll: People Like Trump's Tax Plan

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.
