According to a new poll from Rasmussen Reports, 51 percent of folks who are likely voters are in agreement with a statement that was made by Republican Sen. John Kennedy, who recently denounced the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill that passed in 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,” the Louisiana Republican had said.
There was only 44 percent of likely voters who disagreed with the comment, which is actually a bit surprising.
Take a look at the rest of the poll’s findings via Newsmax:
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 conducted between August 10-11 and surveyed 1,000 likely voters. The margin of error for the poll is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
