Mostly as a result of weak support from Democrats and independents regarding the proposed tax changes, only 29 percent of USA adults as a whole approve of the plan, while 56 percent disapprove and 16 percent have no opinion.
Only 5 percent of respondents said they expect low income Americans to benefit the most from Republicans' efforts to overhaul the US tax code.

President Donald Trump's approval rating dropped three points from a late November survey to 35 percent.
The findings came as congressional lawmakers were set to begin reconciling the differences included in the respective GOP tax overhaul bills that have passed the U.S. House and Senate in recent weeks.
Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said the findings suggest voters consider President Donald Trump and Republicans' efforts to overhaul the USA tax code as being "built for the rich at the expense of the rest". "It's a fantastic bill for the middle class", Mr. Trump said.
A Gallup poll found that 29% of Americans approved of the bill, while 56% disapproved.
