According to a brand new poll put out by Rasmussen Reports, 51 percent of likely voters agree with a recent statement from Sen. John Kennedy, a Republican from Florida, who has come out against the $1.2 trillion infrastructure package that was passed by the Senate this week.
“They told us it was a real infrastructure bill. It’s not. Only 23% of the bill is real infrastructure. The rest is Green New Deal and welfare. They told us the bill was paid for. It isn’t. We’re going to have to borrow maybe up to $400 billion to pay for it,” Kennedy went on to say.
A total of 54 percent of voters disagreed with the statement, which was unattributed in the survey question.
Here are how the poll results, released Thursday, break down:
- 45% of voters say they support the infrastructure bill, compared to 41% who are opposed. 14% are uncertain.
- 63% of Republicans oppose the bill, while 66% of Democrats support it. 42% of independent voters back the bill, compared 40% who are against it.
- 50% of men say they support the bill, compared to 41% of women.
The poll was done between August 10-11, with 1,000 likely voters being surveyed. There’s a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
