Tax Overhaul Remains Unpopular, Poll Shows

Tax Overhaul Remains Unpopular, Poll Shows

"I'm choosing to invest it to fight the administration's flawed policies and to elect Democrats to the Senate and House of Representatives", said Klarman.

The poll notes that in the five districts now represented by Republicans, 46 percent of voters back the Republican candidate while 44 percent back the Democratic one. 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. "Not only are New Jersey Democrats doing better on the generic House ballot statewide, but the shift is coming nearly entirely from districts now held by the GOP".

Fifty-four percent of registered voters in New Jersey say they would vote or lean toward voting for the Democratic candidate in their district compared with 35 percent who would support the Republican candidate if the election was held now. Nationally the new law has 41 percent support, while 42 percent are against it.

Among all adults, Democrats held a wider lead of 10 percentage points over Republicans in the generic ballot.

Further, among Republican likely voters, 95 percent say they would vote for their party's candidate, which is up from 89 percent in January and now matches the level among Democrats, 95 percent.

However, in the past two elections, these districts averaged a 22-point advantage for Republicans.

Klarman said he's financing his new political donations using his share of the $1.5 trillion tax cut Trump signed into law late previous year. Almost half (49 percent) of New Jerseyans expect that their tax bills will rise as a result of the overhaul, which scaled back the popular state and local tax deduction. Just 20 percent said they expected a tax cut. In the five House seats now held by a Republican, 46 percent of voters prefer the GOP candidate and 44 percent the Democrat.

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. "That's what makes this plan a particularly tough sell for Republican House candidates here", Murray said. In January, the last time that poll was taken, Democratic candidates enjoyed a 12-point edge. Even among residents in the state's five GOP-held congressional districts, Trump's approval rating is only 43 percent, compared with 53 percent who disapprove.

The poll of 703 New Jersey adults, including a subset of 632 registered voters, was conducted from April 6 to April 10. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points for the full sample and 3.9 percentage points for registered voters.
