Pennsylvanians say GOP tax plan doesn’t make sense for them
By MARK BLEIERBy MARK BERKMANPublished Mar 18, 2018 10:11AMPennsylvania residents say their Republican tax plan won’t make a dent in the state’s economic woes, and they say the GOP tax proposal isn’t worth the effort.
In a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 57 percent of respondents said they would like to see the GOP’s tax plan implemented.
That compares to 37 percent who said the same of President Donald Trump’s proposal.
Republicans in Pennsylvania are more likely to say the tax plan isn’t a good fit for the state than Democrats are, with 49 percent saying so compared to 33 percent for Democrats.
But just 32 percent of Republicans say they think the tax proposal is a good idea.
More than two-thirds of Republicans said they wouldn’t want to see a Republican in the White House again.
Pennsylvania voters are evenly split on whether Trump should step down or stay in office through 2020.
Trump and Vice President Mike Pence both want to stay in the Oval Office through 2020, while only 35 percent of Pennsylvania voters want the president to step down.
The poll was conducted from Mar. 10 to Mar. 15 among a random national sample of 1,501 adults who are registered to vote and have a landline telephone.
The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
