MADISON, Wis. — According to a new poll by Data for Progress, 67% of likely Wisconsin voters support President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda.
Support for the President’s agenda comes as no surprise, as the American Rescue Plan continues to help small businesses, rural health clinics, and farmers build back better from this pandemic — all while providing tax cuts for middle-class families and easing financial anxieties.
Read key excerpts from the article — titled “New Poll Finds Biden Agenda Has Strong Bipartisan Support in Wisconsin” — below:
“A Biden administration proposal that would expand Medicare coverage, offer Medicaid to more families, make the first two years of college more affordable, and provide paid family leave enjoys support from 2 out of every 3 Wisconsinites polled in a recent survey.
“Polling 518 likely voters in the state between Aug. 20 and 27, the nonprofit left-leaning pollster Data for Progress found that 67% of likely Wisconsin voters supported the plan, dubbed the Build Back Better agenda. The provisions in the plan with the most support were long-term care expansions for the elderly and disabled, expanded Medicare coverage, and childcare investments.”
“The survey also found 71% of likely voters here support the administration’s infrastructure bill, called the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, as well as broad support for paying for the programs by increasing taxes on the super-rich.
“According to the results, between 76% and 75% of likely Wisconsin voters support using a combination of increased capital gains taxes for the wealthy, limited deductions for wealthy business owners, and higher income taxes in general for the wealthy, to help fund the plans. The results mirror those found by the pollster in 11 other states, including West Virginia, Arizona, New Hampshire, Colorado, Montana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Oregon.”
