Key Takeaways from April 2018 NBC/WSJ Survey

Since last month, Donald Trump’s job rating has dropped four points, and it remains at the low end of the very small 38%-to-44% range that he has traded in since taking office.  Democrats continue to hold a healthy advantage on congressional preference, and this jumps to a wide margin among high-interest voters.  However, Republicans hold an advantage on dealing with the economy, and they have re-taken a slight lead on dealing with taxes. Still, reactions to the GOP tax plan are more negative than positive, and while many are withholding judgment, Americans right now are more likely to see criticisms of the bill—increasing deficits, benefiting the wealthy and big corporations—rather than positive arguments for it—improving the economy, jobs, and tax cuts for average Americans.
