GOP ‘Propaganda’ Not Working: Only 13% Believe Tax Plan Will Help Middle Class

As NPR‘s Danielle Kurtzleben noted on Thursday, previous polling leading up to the GOP’s tax bill rollout revealed similar skepticism.

“GOP selling points aren’t sinking in,” Kurtzleben wrote. “One of Republicans’ biggest talking points is that a corporate tax cut will benefit workers (though even right-wing economists have cast doubt on White House estimates on this point). But nearly 60 percent of people believe corporations won’t ‘use that money to create jobs.'”
