Most Americans disapprove of GOP tax plan

Nearly two-thirds of Americans - 63 percent - disapprove of the way Trump is handling the issue of sexual harassment and sexual assault, with 22 percent disapproving.

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.

The Senate, in turn, approved its own almost $1.5 trillion tax overhaul bill Saturday - legislation which Republicans contended would benefit Americans of all incomes and jumpstart the economy.

Another poll from Quinnipiac University also found that 29% of those surveyed approved of the TCJA, while 53% disapproved.

Just 39 percent of Republicans say they think Congress should look into the allegations against Trump, compared to 86 percent of Democrats who feel the same way.

Forty-seven percent of women nationwide say they have been sexually assaulted, according to the poll, compared with 17 percent of men who say they have been sexually assaulted. More than a quarter of Americans in September 1986, just prior to final passage of that plan, expressed no opinion about it - roughly twice today's level. Within this, 67% of Republicans approve of the legislation, making them the only demographic along party, race, gender, education or age lines to approve.

Congressional and White House Republicans have set a goal of December 31 for the bill to become law.

In fact, the Republican tax cuts are even more unpopular than tax hikes passed under presidents Clinton and George H.W. Bush.

The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

Voters, by a 61 to 34 percent margin, further said they think the Republican tax plan will favor the rich at the expense of the middle class, the survey found. Thirty-nine percent of Democrats report following the topic very closely - well above the 28 percent of Republicans and 25 percent of independents.
