New Polls Show Why Senate Democrats’ Tax Reform Opposition Will Hurt Them
New polling numbers from Axios this morning show that voters in the states where red-state Senate Democrats are up for reelection have a positive view of both the economy and tax reform.
Axios: “New peril for moderate Dems: Voters happy with Trump’s economy”
This news comes the same day we learn that the economy added 313,000 more jobs in February.
In Indiana, where 59% of voters support the tax reform law, Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly voted against the bill, saying it was a “partisan tax hike.”
And while 61% of North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s constituents support the tax law, she also voted against the bill and claimed it would hurt middle income families.
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) also voted against tax reform will have to answer to 61% of voters in West Virginia who support the law.
One thing is clear: as voters warm to Republicans’ handling of the economy, vulnerable Democrats will be left in the cold come November.
