The wealthy will benefit most from this plan, 66 percent of voters believe, while 22 percent say the middle class will benefit most and 4 percent say low income people will benefit most.

That's significantly different from an earlier AJC poll in January 2017, which found Georgia voters split in their views of Trump. The president also received an "A" from 16 percent of voters, a "B" from another 16 percent, a "C" from 11 percent of voters and 17 percent give him a "D".

That is the word most used by respondents to describe Donald Trump's first year in office, according to a new national poll released today.

"It's been a very tough Freshman year for President Donald Trump, by any measure", Malloy said.

Now, almost a year into Trump's tenure at the White House, almost six-in-10 voters in Georgia hold an unfavorable view of the president.

The poll, conducted by the University of Georgia's School of Public and International Affairs, put the president's approval rating at 36.7 percent and his disapproval rating at 58.7 percent.

Sixty-nine percent of respondents said Trump is not levelheaded, while 28 percent disagreed. The tax plan will increase their taxes, 33 percent of voters say, as 24 percent say the plan will reduce their taxes and 37 percent say it will not have much impact. About 85 percent of Georgia voters who voted for Trump in 2016 approve of his work in his first year in office, the report said.

The poll, which surveyed 940 voters, also found that a majority of Georgia voters - 57 percent - are not satisfied with the way things are going in the United States, AJC reported.
