With less than a month to go before the midterm elections, Americans still tend to disapprove of the Republican tax law passed last year — and still say that they haven’t seen an increase in their take-home pay, according to a new Gallup poll. “Americans are underwhelmed with the tax overhaul so far,” writes Gallup’s Megan Brenan.
Gallup’s survey of 1,462 adults, conducted September 24-30, found that:
46 percent of Americans disapprove of the tax law, compared to 39 percent who approve, essentially unchanged from seven months ago
64 percent say they have not seen an increase in their take-home pay
51 percent say cuts haven't helped their family’s financial situation, while 26 percent say they’ve helped “a little” and 12 percent say they helped “a lot.”
