Naomi Jagoda writes for The Hill about a new poll that essentially contradicts many surveys finding that more people oppose the GOP tax law than support it:

A business group that supports the GOP tax law is highlighting the results of a new poll that shows voters see benefits to the tax cuts, which are a key part of the Republican Party’s midterm messaging this fall.

The poll from the Job Creators Network (JCN) found that 90 percent of Republican voters, 61 percent of swing voters and 36 percent of Democratic voters think the tax law will have a positive effect on the economy.

The poll, conducted by Luntz Global, includes an over-sampling of Trump voters, Republicans and small business owners.
Specifically, it surveyed 1,000 respondents, 700 of which were from a national sample that was weighted to represent the voting population. An additional 300 were Trump voters, Republicans and small business owners.

It’s likely that sampling led to a result that could be more favorable for the GOP tax law, but the Job Creators Network said the results are significant nonetheless because it shows some support for the tax law across-the-board and counteracts a narrative in the press that even Republicans don’t fully support the tax law.
