Washington, D.C. - New numbers show a growing perception that the GOP's tax reform bill will benefit the wealthiest Americans.
A new CNN poll found 55% of respondents opposing the tax proposal. That's 10% more people who oppose the bill than in November.
That same poll found support for the bill is up slightly from November, now at 33% compared to 31%.
According to new analysis, big business stands to benefit from the bill's passing. The corporate tax rate would drop from 35%-21%.
The top tax rate would also be reduced to 37%, from 39%.
Republicans have promised the tax plan is aimed at the middle class. But the individual tax cuts expire after 8 years, and analysts predict that 70% of middle income Americans would see a tax hike.
