Voters Like Tax Cuts But Fear Trump, Congress May Go Too Far

Voters still tend to think cutting taxes is a good economic move but worry that President Trump and Congress may cut too much.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters believe tax cuts help the economy. Thirty percent (30%) say tax cuts hurt the economy instead, while 10% feel they have no economic impact. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
