A new poll finds most Americans back the infrastructure deal, which is more good news for proponents of the package that cleared the Senate with bipartisan support this week.
A sizable 62% of Americans support the $1.2 trillion measure, according to a new Fox News poll.
Breaking down the numbers, and to little surprise, Democrats overwhelmingly support it (87%), followed by a majority of independents (63%) and some Republicans (37%).
And despite efforts to push through the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation package on a party-line vote, the poll also finds a majority of Americans (56%) say they support the additional infrastructure items in the House-bound bill with spending to address climate change, health care and child care.
The bulk of that support comes from Democrats (88%) and independents (60%) – and significantly drops among Republicans, to 24%.
