The GOP tax overhaul benefits the wealthy the most, according to 64 percent of USA voters, while 24 percent say the tax plan benefits the middle class and 5 percent say it benefits low-income people, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday.

Forty-one percent of voters said they expect their taxes to go up under the GOP plan, 32 percent said they think it would not have much impact and 20 percent said they think it would reduce their taxes.

A new Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday finds 70 percent of respondents think Congress should investigate the allegations.

Among Republican respondents, 67 percent approve and 10 disapprove of the plan, while 6 percent of Democrats approve and 84 disapprove.

Notably, Democrats have been following the news about congressional debate over the tax bill more closely than other party groups have, according to Gallups polling. The bill is so long and complicated that few of the Republicans who voted for it have even read it; they're unaware of the devils lurking in the details.

Meanwhile, American voters give President Donald Trump a negative 35-to-58 percent job approval rating, which has slipped three points compared to the 38-to-55 percent approval rating Trump got in a November 21 Quinnipiac University poll.

Trump told reporters Tuesday that he views the tax plan as a "tremendous bill for jobs and for the middle class".

Results for this Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews conducted December 1-2, 2017, on the Gallup U.S. Daily survey, with a random sample of 1,020 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. A conference committee tasked with coming up with a compromise bill is expected to kick off later this week, with a goal of getting that bill to President Donald Trump's desk by Christmas.

Of independents, 25 percent approved and 56 percent disapproved.
