As reported by HuffPost, Navigator’s latest survey found that 65 percent of Americans support the legislation after learning about its core components while only 24 percent are opposed, including 61 percent of independents and vast majorities across race who are supportive. When told that the bill would be funded through taxes on corporations and the wealthiest Americans, overall support ticks up to 66 percent. Groups including first-time 2020 voters, those who voted for Biden in 2020 but disapprove of his handling of the economy, Americans living in union households, moms, younger voters, moderates, and women with a college degree all register at least 70 percent support for the Inflation Reduction Act.
“For months, our research has consistently shown that focusing on combating climate change, lowering drug costs, and raising taxes on the wealthy earn overwhelming support from the American public, and this new economic package checks all of those boxes,” said Bryan Bennett, Senior Director of Polling & Analytics at the Hub Project and Advisor to Navigator Research. “It is encouraging to see that Senate Democrats are being responsive to what the public wants and are looking out for the well-being of working families.”
