Few Arizonans think the Republican tax-cut plan being debated in Washington will help them, and most want their senators to reject the legislation, according to a poll conducted by a firm used by Democrats.
Forty-four percent of those polled said they disapprove of the plan based on what they had learned about it. About a quarter, 26 percent, said they approve of the GOP plan.
About half, 52 percent, think the plan will mainly benefit the wealthy. A quarter said they think it will help the middle class.
By wide margins, those polled said corporations and the wealthy should pay more in federal taxes, while nearly half said those with more-average earnings should see their obligations fall.
About 40 percent of the Arizona respondents were Republicans, 31 percent were Democrats and the rest were independents or aligned with other parties.
