A New York Times-SurveyMonkey poll released on Monday shows that, for the first time, a majority of Americans now support the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.
Fifty-one percent of Americans support the tax cuts, while forty-six percent oppose. The same poll in January showed the approval at 46 percent.
The low popularity was due in part to the lies perpetuated by the Democratic Party and the liberal media, such as that most middle-class Americans would see a tax hike (which is false) and that the rich will get a disproportionate tax cut (mostly true, but false in high-tax states like California and New York).
It appears that the Democratic Party overplayed their hands because the American people now know they are indeed getting a tax cut, not a tax hike, and it isn’t simply “crumbs” as Nancy Pelosi claimed.
The poll was conducted among 10,255 adults between Feb. 5 and Feb. 11 and has a margin of error of 1.5 percentage points.
