Sample and Methodology detail

By wide margins, American voters oppose several key proposals by President Donald Trump and/or Republicans in Congress, ranging from across the board tax cuts to oil pipelines to the wall on the Mexican border, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

Voters support 54 - 38 percent "renegotiating major trade deals with other countries, even if it means paying more for the products you buy" and support 87 - 10 percent increasing federal spending for roads, mass transit and other infrastructure, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh- pe-ack) University Poll finds.

But American voters oppose other measures:
  • 62 - 31 percent against reducing taxes across the board, even if it increases the deficit;
  • 51 - 38 percent against restarting the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines;
  • 60 - 37 percent against building the wall on the Mexican border, with 65 - 33 percent against the wall if the U.S. must pay for it;
  • 76 - 18 percent against lowering taxes on the wealthy;
  • 50 - 43 percent against lowering taxes on businesses and corporations;
  • 54 - 34 percent against removing regulations on businesses and corporations;
  • 63 - 27 percent against removing specific regulations intended to combat climate change;
  • 54 - 43 percent against repealing the Affordable Care Act.
The U.S. should deport all immigrants, 19 percent of American voters say, while 22 percent say the U.S. should deport only immigrants who have committed any crime and 53 percent say only immigrants who have committed a serious crime should be deported. Three percent say no illegal immigrants should be deported.

"He rattled the rafters with bold calls for pipelines and tax cuts, a big wall and a new health care plan. But while his base may be eating it up, a broad portion of the electorate is telling President Donald Trump there is a big difference between campaign bravado and an agenda that works for all Americans," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

A total of 32 percent of American voters are "very concerned" or "somewhat concerned" that they will lose their current health insurance if the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, is repealed. A total of 68 percent are "not so concerned" or "not concerned at all."

A total of 50 percent of American voters are "very concerned" or "somewhat concerned" that the cost of their current health care will rise if Obamacare is repealed. A total of 49 percent are "not so concerned" or "not concerned at all."

A total of 44 percent of American voters are "very concerned" or "somewhat concerned" that the quality of their health care will get worse if Obamacare is repealed. A total of 56 percent are "not so concerned" or "not concerned at all." Legalized Marijuana

Marijuana should be made legal in the U.S., voters say 59 - 36 percent. Republicans are opposed 61 - 35 percent and voters over 65 years old are opposed 51 - 42 percent. Every other party, gender, education, age and racial group listed supports legalized marijuana.

Voters support 93 - 6 percent legalized marijuana for medical purposes if prescribed by a doctor.

The government should not enforce federal laws against marijuana in states that have legalized medical or recreational marijuana use, voters say 71 - 23 percent. Voters in every listed group support this position. That Russian Thing

A total of 64 percent of American voters are "very concerned" or "somewhat concerned" about President Trump's relationship with Russia.

Voters support 72 - 23 percent, including 52 - 43 percent among Republicans, investigations into the potential links between some of Trump's campaign advisors and the Russian government.

Alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election is a "very important" or "somewhat important issue" 65 percent of American voters say.

From February 16 - 21, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,323 voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 2.7 percentage points. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.
