Less than one-third of Americans approve of the Republican tax plan, Quinnipiac figures show. Within this, 67% of Republicans approve of the legislation, making them the only demographic along party, race, gender, education or age lines to approve.

Mostly as a result of weak support from Democrats and independents regarding the proposed tax changes, only 29 percent of US adults as a whole approve of the plan, while 56 percent disapprove and 16 percent have no opinion.

Sixty-four percent of those surveyed said they believe the legislation would benefit the wealthy the most, 24 percent said it would benefit the middle class the most and 5 percent said it would benefit those with low incomes the most.

Speaking to reporters before a lunch with several Republican senators, Trump said the bill which passed the Senate last week would soon make it out of a conference committee and head to his desk for signing.
