Poll: In Competitive U.S. House Races, Voters Are Starting to Believe in Tax Cuts

Voters in competitive U.S. House districts across the country are starting to believe the GOP tax bill passed late last year will cut their taxes in 2018, according to a new poll from American Action Network (AAN).

AAN’s Corry Bliss wrote, in a memo on the tax cuts:

Over the past month, as Americans across the country have learned more about the tax cuts, there have been major changes – even in states like New York and California, where the bill received the most negative coverage … As companies increase paychecks, add jobs, bring money back from overseas, and award bonuses to their employees, Americans are already beginning to feel the positive effects of tax reform and a center-right policy agenda.

Bliss showed, by way of example, the changes in New York’s 24th Congressional District and California’s 21st Congressional District:

  • In NY-24, the proportion of voters believing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will raise their taxes dropped from 41 percent to 31 percent, and the proportion believing the bill will lower their taxes went from 26 percent to 32 percent
  • In CA-21, the proportion of voters believing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will raise their taxes dropped from 42 percent to 30 percent, and the proportion believing the bill will lower their taxes went from 23 percent to 29 percent

AAN is engaged in a multi-million dollar ad campaign “promoting the benefits of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act since its passage through television and digital advertising.”
