Only 6 percent of Democrats and 27 percent of independent voters approve of the tax plan.

Some 63 percent of registered voters surveyed said they disapprove of "how the Republican party is handling the issue of sexual harassment and sexual assault in politics".

When asked how the tax plan would affect their own taxes, 41 percent said they would pay more, 20 percent said they would pay less and 32 percent predicted it would not have much impact.

Here is a link to more details on the breakdown of the survey, including various subgroups.

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.


The opposition of the public, according to the polls, is that the bill gives massive tax cuts to corporations and the wealthiest Americans, while offering only token and temporary breaks to the middle class and increases to the poorest citizens.

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.

The tax bill now heads to conference committee where representatives from the House and Senate will work to craft compromise legislation that could get through both chambers by month's end.
