Despite the fact that about 80 percent of Americans are expected to receive tax cuts this year under Trump’s 2017 tax bill, only 17 percent believe they’re benefitting financially, according to a new poll cited Monday by CNBC. The poll, conducted by NBC and The Wall Street Journal, found that 28 percent expect to pay more taxes, 27 percent think they’ll pay the same, and 28 percent aren’t sure. For most Americans, the tax cuts will be relatively minor, CNBC reports—the lowest-earning 60 percent of households, for example, will receive less than $1,000. The poll could in part explain why the plan is still unpopular: Another poll found that only 36 percent approve of the plan, while 49 percent disapprove. Expected tax cuts largely fell along partisan lines: While 33 percent of Republicans thought they’d pay fewer taxes, only 7 percent of Democrats felt the same.
