|THE DAILY QUOTE|
|“The new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows that the tax-cut law, never broadly popular, has sagged in public esteem lately. Just 27 percent of Americans call it a good idea, down from 30 percent in January. A 36 percent plurality call it a bad idea… Moreover, a majority gives thumbs-down on the plan when asked to consider its potential effects… 53 percent foresee a negative impact from higher deficits and disproportionate benefits for the wealthy and big corporations.”
