Half of Americans believe Russia-Trump collusion probe politically motivated

The Quinnipiac survey also found 64 percent of respondents said the bill would mostly benefit the wealthy, while 24 percent said the middle class would get the most benefit.

Just 5 percent of Americans say it benefits low-income people, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released Tuesday.

However, the big difference between the two efforts is that far fewer Americans opposed the 1986 tax bill than oppose the proposals being debated today, 34 percent vs. 56 percent, respectively, Gallup says.

If there is a bright spot in these data for Republicans, Gallup says, it is that public uncertainty about the plan is highest among Republicans (14 percent) and independents (19 percent) - two groups that might break relatively positively toward the law as they learn more about it, thus nudging overall approval a bit higher.

Fifty-three percent of American voters are rejecting the tax plan while 29 percent approve, the independent Quinnipiac University Poll finds.

Among Republican respondents, 67 percent approve and 10 disapprove of the plan, while 6 percent of Democrats approve and 84 disapprove.

The LCD iPhone , in contrast, will sell at a lower price point ($650-$750) and have a lower pixel density (320-330ppi). This of course explains why the device is rumored to be a low-cost entry built for low-end and midrange markets.

Although voters, on the whole, expressed negative takes on the GOP-backed proposal, which would make sweeping changes to the tax code, Republicans were much more supportive of the effort with almost seven in 10 saying they approve of the plan. As many as 46% of those polled said that the investigation was justified, 74% of them being Democrats and 17% Republicans.

The same poll gave President Donald Trump an approval rating of 35 percent and a disapproval rating of 58 percent.

Trump and the GOP are failing to convince anyone that their tax bill is a plan that is targeted toward the middle-class.

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,508 voters between November 29 and December 4 with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percent.

After a year in which the party has passed no major legislation despite holding majorities in both houses of congress, GOP lawmakers crave a victory before year's end, an accomplishment to gloat about during their upcoming break. The Senate approved its plan - which includes a measure to repeal the Affordable Care Act mandate - by a vote of 51-49 early Saturday.

The House and Senate are going to conference to unify their bills and hope to have a plan approved by Christmas.
