Half Anticipate Tax Cuts By Year’s End

The Senate passed the GOP’s tax reform bill in a middle-of-the-night vote over the weekend. Half of voters think it’s likely that Congress will go through with the tax cuts before the end of the year, but they’re torn on whether they will end up cutting taxes too much or not enough.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters think it’s at least somewhat likely that Congress will cut taxes for most Americans before year’s end, including 24% who say it’s Very Likely. Forty-five percent (45%) think it’s unlikely Congress will go through with the tax cuts before 2018, including 19% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
