CRUMBS: GOP Takes Lead Over Tax-and-Spend Democrats Two Months after Trump Tax Cuts
It’s been two months since the Trump tax cuts were signed into law.
At least 346 companies have announce tax reform bunuses, raises and 401(k) hikes since the law passed affecting over 3.5 million Americans.
For the first time in years wages are rising and small business owners across the country say this is the best time in decades to expand.
Democrat leader Pelosi says these tax cut bonuses are crumbs.
Republicans now lead Democrats in generic congressional polling.
Two months ago Democrats were ahead by more than 10 points.
The Politico reported:
Republicans have erased the Democratic advantage on the generic congressional ballot in a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll that, for the first time since April, also shows President Donald Trump’s approval rating equaling the percentage of voters who disapprove of his job performance.
Fully 39 percent of registered voters say they would support the GOP candidate for Congress in their district, while 38 percent would back the Democratic candidate. Nearly a quarter of voters, 23 percent, are undecided.
Voters are split almost evenly along party lines. Democratic voters break for their party, 85 percent to 5 percent, while Republicans similarly favor the GOP, 84 percent to 8 percent. Among independent voters, 26 percent would vote for the Democrat, 25 percent for the Republican and nearly half, 49 percent, are undecided.
The GOP’s 1-point advantage comes after three months of tracking in which Democrats maintained a lead ranging between 2 and 10 points on the generic ballot.
