There’s a lot of overlap between views of Trump and of the tax plan in general. You like what the president is doing and the president is pushing this tax bill, therefore, you like the tax bill. Trump is the sum of a lot of things besides this tax plan, and the tax plan has a lot of components that are unrelated to Trump. Despite the tax plan actually undercutting key Trump campaign issues like reducing the deficit and helping the middle class, it’s supported by Trump supporters. “Aides in the White House often show Trump polls designed to make him feel good, according to aides and advisers,” Josh Dawsey and Steven Shepard wrote.
