House GOP Seeks to Make Trump Tax Cuts PERMANENT — MIDTERM MESSAGE

House GOP Seeks to Make Trump Tax Cuts PERMANENT — MIDTERM MESSAGE

A majority of Americans (58 per cent) have said that the writer of the op-ed, an unnamed senior administration official, ought to publicly identify themselves, and 55 per cent think it is inappropriate for an administration official to work against the agenda of the President.

There are sharp partisan splits on both questions, with about 8 in 10 Republicans calling it inappropriate for a White House official to act against the president. Democrats have said they benefit mainly the wealthy and corporations.

The worry among Republicans has risen to such levels that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell recently likened his party's efforts to hold their Senate majority to a "knife fight in an alley". He says "it's kind of a moot conversation in many ways" because "right now impeachment's impossible".

President Donald Trump's approval rating appears to be taking a hit across just about every poll. In CNN's poll, only 32 percent of adults said Trump is honest and trustworthy, a new low in CNN's polling. Support for impeachment has risen since June, when 42% said Trump should be removed from office.

"There are certain lower taxes for people starting businesses for investing in your small business", he said. And there seems to be little the President could do to change the minds among his opposition.

Trump would try to play the victim card and paint Democrats as having unfairly attacked him over unproven claims of collusion and obstruction of justice accusations, according to Axios. He came to the White House in 1976 from the moderate wing of the Democratic Party, and he clashed with party liberals, drawing a spirited primary challenge in 1980 from Massachusetts Sen. Democrats will likely use the meeting as an opportunity to highlight what they see as the failings of the new law in an attempt to score political points with their base. Eighty-four per cent of Republicans surveyed approved of the job Trump was doing.

A total of 70 percent of American voters say the nation's economy is "excellent" or "good", matching the all-time high rating for the economy.

Eight polling bodies - ABC News/Washington Post, CNN, Gallup, IBD/TIPP, the Kaiser Family Foundation, Quinnipiac University, Grinnell College/Selzer & Co, and Suffolk University - gave the president an average approval rating of 38 percent, a drop of three points from Trump's previous approval polling average, the Vox website reported Tuesday.
