Americans split over Biden infrastructure spending: poll

0 1

Americans are split on whether President Biden should press forward with an infrastructure plan to reinvigorate the US economy — even if it means raising taxes, according to a new survey.

Fifty-two percent back the president’s spending plan and a tax increase — including 80 percent of Democrats and 54 percent of independents, an ABC News/Ipsos poll found.

But 47 percent — including 78 percent of Republicans — said taxes should stay where they are even at the expense of the economy.

The divide on Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan reflects the debate between administration officials — who believe the spending plan will propel the economy through the coronavirus recession — and Republicans, who think tax hikes, especially on corporations, would stifle growth.

Still, more than 100 days into the Biden administration 64 percent of Americans said they’re optimistic about the direction of the country, while 36 percent are pessimistic.

Asked about Biden’s ability to unite the country, one of the president’s priorities on the campaign trail and in the early days of his administration, less than a quarter — 23 percent — said the country has become more unified.

Of that group, an overwhelming 87 percent credit Biden for bringing the country together, 3 percent give Congressional Republican leaders the nod and 10 percent said both deserve credit.

Among the 28 percent who think the country is more divided, 60 percent blame Biden, while 34 percent say Biden and the Republicans are both at fault.

Only 6 percent blamed Republicans.

Nearly half — 48 percent — said they believe the country isn’t any more divided or united than it was.

The poll surveyed 513 people between April 30 and May 1.

It has a plus/minus 4.7 percentage points margin of error.
