By 2-to-1 margin, voters back $3 trillion infrastructure plan funded by taxes on rich, corporations


In a separate query on how likely voters were to support a $3 trillion infrastructure plan if it was funded by tax increases on people making more than $400,000, 57% said they would be more likely to support it while 17% said less likely, and 26% said the tax would have no impact on their support.

The potential provisions to be included in the bill were also widely popular. Here’s a list of the provisions tested and how many respondents said they either “strongly” or “somewhat” supported their inclusion in the plan.

  • Increased housing options for low-income Americans: 70% support
  • Research on climate change: 63%
  • Extension of the child tax credit expansion: 62%
  • Free community college: 60%
  • Extension of Affordable Care Act subsidies: 59%

Overall, 57% of voters said they either strongly or somewhat approved of the job President Biden is doing.

A separate AP poll released Wednesday found 61% of Americans approve of Biden’s job performance. In that same poll, Biden got a 5-point bounce from last month on his handling of the economy—60% now approve following passage of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan.
