  • Large Majorities of Americans Oppose the Republican Tax Scam

Sixty-four percent of those surveyed said they believe the legislation would benefit the wealthy the most, 24 percent said it would benefit the middle class the most and 5 percent said it would benefit those with low incomes the most.

Majorities of blacks (83 percent), Hispanics (70 percent) and whites (52 percent) disapprove of the president's job performance. While most other Americans say the opposite, 67 percent of Republicans support the effort, 73 percent say it helps the middle-class more than the wealthy, and 86 percent say it will boost jobs and economic growth. A full 61% of respondents felt that the bill "favors the rich at the expense of the middle class".

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

If it does pass, it would be the most sweeping change to the US tax system since the Reagan era.

A plurality of voters - 18 percent - said healthcare was the most important problem facing the country today. But 53 percent of Americans in the Quinnipiac poll say it won't. By two to one - 52 percent to 25 percent - Americans say they feel embarrassed rather than proud that Trump is president.

Of those who said they were sexually assaulted, 39 percent said it happened in a social setting, 37 percent said it happened at work, 27 percent said it happened in the home, 20 percent said it happened on the street, and 19 percent said it happened in school.

But citing several polls, CNBC notes that the plan "remains deeply unpopular as the House and Senate move closer to passing a joint bill".

Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said the findings suggest voters consider President Donald Trump and Republicans' efforts to overhaul the US tax code as being "built for the rich at the expense of the rest". Another 13 percent of voters list foreign policy, while 11 percent cite terrorism and 10 percent list race relations.

The poll, which surveyed more than 1,500 voters nationwide via phone from November 29 to December 4, has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points. Live interviewers called landlines and cell phones.
