Tax Overhaul Remains Unpopular, Poll Shows

Tax Overhaul Remains Unpopular, Poll Shows

Seth Klarman, the billionaire CEO of the Baupost Group who the Economist once dubbed "The Oracle of Boston", called out Republicans for failing to keep President Donald Trump in check.

Fueling the negative numbers for Republicans was New Jerseyans' disapproval of Trump's performance in office.

Ever since its enactment, the tax plan has been more unpopular than popular, Journal/NBC News polls found. Republicans hoped that would change after the law began to take effect, as more money showed up in paychecks and Republicans did more to explain the benefits. The poll found that in accordance with the average border Democrats appreciated within those districts in 2014 and 2016, the candidate was preferred by voters to the Republican candidate 59% to 28 percent, at such 7 districts united.

WaPo's poll also suggests neither Democrats nor Republicans hold an advantage in support among the 42 percent of likely voters who want congressional candidates to share their views on the issue. More than 6 in 10 voters, 61 percent, disapproved of the job he was doing as president, compared with 35 percent who viewed his performance positively. The Post-ABC poll finds that 40 percent approve of the president, up slightly from 36 percent in January to his highest level of support since last April.

As the Trump administration descends into chaos and the Republican Party readies to implode before the midterm elections, extremist Democrats seem eager to seize the opportunity to push a radical left agenda ("Resistance warriors to plot midterm attack", April 12).

The International Union for Conservation of Nature has listed them as critically endangered due to disease and poaching. She was on birth control pills when she first arrived at the zoo three years ago, according to the Washington Post .

Under Mr. Trump, deficit reduction and spending restraint have taken a back seat to the GOP's push to cut taxes and its support for a bipartisan budget deal that raised defense and domestic spending.

The American Action Network, a nonprofit with ties to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., has spent more than $30 million on ads supporting the tax bill, including a new $1 million campaign in 30 districts, including MacArthur's.

Many New Jerseyans aren't fans of the new federal tax law, either. "Tragically, Donald Trump has displayed few of the character traits required in a United States president, and no aptitude for or interest in developing them", Klarman said. Just 19 percent expect their taxes to go down, while another 25 percent think there will be no impact. In the five House seats now held by a Republican, 46 percent of voters prefer the GOP candidate and 44 percent the Democrat.

Democrats once had a 10 point lead "among all adults", but that has fallen "to 4 points among registered voters and 5 points among those who say they're both registered and certain to vote". It had a margin of error plus or minus 3.7 percentage points for your complete sample and 3.9 percentage points for registered voters.
