ICYMI: NEW BUILDING BACK TOGETHER POLL: BUILD BACK BETTER AGENDA REMAINS DEEPLY POPULAR ACROSS KEY STATES, MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WHO BACK AGENDA SEE 17-POINT BOOST IN SUPPORT
New poll comes on the heels of an additional investment of nearly $5 million on TV and digital to boost passage of the Build Back Better Agenda
Washington, D.C. — A new poll commissioned by Building Back Together, first reported in The Hill, highlights the continued popularity of the Build Back Better Agenda. According to the poll, the plan to lower costs for essentials like health care, deliver a historic tax cut for middle and working class families, paid for by ensuring the wealthiest Americans making more than $400,000 pay their fair share, is supported by voters in battleground states and districts by a double-digit margin.
Further, voters in key districts are prepared to reward members of Congress who vote for the Build Back Better Agenda, saying they are more likely to vote for a member who supports the plan by a 17-point margin. The new polling comes on the heels of a recently announced investment of nearly $5 million on TV and digital, that adds to $10 million in previously announced spending, to highlight the Build Back Better Agenda in key Congressional districts across the country.
Other highlights from The Hill:
- “A majority of voters across 13 states support the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion social spending plan that would advance key components of President Biden’s economic agenda, according to a new poll released by a progressive nonprofit run by allies of the president.”
- “The survey by ALG Research, commissioned by Building Back Together, found that most registered voters supported the plan in 10 battleground states — Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — as well as Republican-leaning West Virginia and Democratic-leaning Virginia and Minnesota.”
- “The polling, which was conducted Sept. 13–19, also surveyed voters in 48 congressional districts, many of which are battleground districts, across the aforementioned 13 states as well as others in Iowa, Oregon, New Jersey, Texas, Washington, Maine, Illinois, New Hampshire, Hawaii and Wisconsin.”
- “The survey found that most voters in those districts similarly backed the Democrats’ massive spending plan, which includes popular issues like tuition-free community college, universal pre-K, and investments in public housing and climate change.”
- “Fifty-four percent of voters in those states and districts supported the plan, compared to 43 percent who opposed. The survey also found that 58 percent of independents respondents supported the proposal, while 37 percent opposed it.”
- “Voters interviewed for the poll were also asked about their support for a provision in the package that would allow the government to negotiate lower drug prices. Sixty-five percent of those polled said the component makes them more likely to support the Democrats’ spending plan.”
