Backing for the Republican tax-reform plan is decreasing slightly, according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll released Thursday, but more Americans still support the overhaul than oppose it.

Forty-five percent of respondents who are aware of the tax plan back it — a decrease from the 48 percent who supported it last week. Thirty-six percent of respondents are now against the tax measure. 

{mosads}Forty-two percent of those questioned for the new poll said they believe the tax overhaul would positively benefit the American economy, while 22 percent said it would have a negative effect.

The survey of 1,991 voters was conducted from Nov. 2-6. It has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.

The poll comes as the Senate is slated to reveal its own tax-reform legislation, which is expected to differ from the bill unveiled last week in the lower chamber.
