The problem seems to be that most Americans aren’t buying the idea that the tax plan will benefit average voters. Fifty-nine percent of respondents said that the plan would favor the rich over the middle class.

Tim Malloy, assistant director of the poll, summed it up this way: "The sentiment from voters: The GOP tax plan is a great idea, if you are rich. Otherwise, you're out of luck.”

The national poll surveyed 1,577 voters between November 7 and November 13, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
