Forty-four percent of voters are in favor of the Republican tax bill that is poised to pass Congress this week, according to a new poll.
The Morning Consult/Politico poll, published Tuesday, shows a plurality support the proposal, while 35 percent of voters are opposed to it.
Support for the tax plan is particularly high among Republican voters, as 72 percent back the proposal. Thirty-seven percent of Independents and 27 percent of Democrats favor the legislation.
The new poll comes hours before the GOP-led House and Senate are expected to vote on the highly-anticipated tax reform package.
According to an analysis from the Tax Policy Center released Monday, 80 percent of taxpayers will see tax cuts in 2018, and roughly 5 percent will see a tax increase of more than $10 under the bill. By 2027, though, more than half of taxpayers will have seen their taxes rise.
The proposal is expected to pass both chambers of Congress with only Republican support, and the tax bill will hand President Trump the first legislative victory of his first year in office.
The Morning Consult/Politico poll was conducted Dec. 14 to Dec. 18, and 1,991 registered voters were surveyed. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
