New Poll: Majority Of Americans Now Support Trump Tax Cuts

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.

When it first passed in mid-December, the bill was extremely unpopular. Polls found that only 25% to as high as 36% (a 32% average) of American voters supporting the law.

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.
