Popularity of Trump Tax Reform Skyrockets as More Americans Realize It Cut Their Taxes

Popularity of Trump Tax Reform Skyrockets as More Americans Realize It Cut Their Taxes, by John Carney.

The public’s perception of the Trump administration’s landmark tax overhaul is rapidly becoming more positive and more realistic.

Americans are now evenly divided over tax reform, with 44 percent saying they approve and 44 percent saying they disapprove, according to the latest Monmouth University Poll. In December, just 25 percent approved and 47 percent disapproved.

The improvement is not surprising given that the December poll numbers were based on a widespread myth that tax reform would raise taxes on many Americans, cutting them only for the wealthy and businesses. In fact, most Americans will see their tax bills fall under the law and very few will pay more in taxes. …

Back in December, half of the public predicted that the bill would raise their taxes. Just 14% said their taxes would go down. Another 25% believed they would see no change.

The recent poll shows that the number of Americans expecting higher taxes has fallen to 36 percent. The number expecting a tax cut has risen to 24%. Those expecting no change is also up, to 32 percent.

Would the anti-Trump media have something to do with the public’s misunderstanding? Would they give the wrong impression over something so factual? Seems they did.
