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.

Trump won Georgia in the 2016 presidential election by 5 points, The Journal-Constitution reported.

Voters' perception of the economy has never been higher, a new poll found.

But 49 percent of voters say former President Barack Obama is more responsible for the state of the economy, while 40 percent say Trump is more responsible.

"It's been a very tough freshman year for President Donald Trump, by any measure", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the poll.

Another 7 percent say they should stay but not become citizens - while only 11 percent say they should get the boot.

Results from the poll also revealed that 37 per cent of voters feel Trump's policies were helping the economy, compared to the 29 per cent that said his policies were hurting the economy.

The Quinnipiac University Poll conducts nationwide public opinion surveys, and statewide polls in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa and Colorado as a public service and for research. When asked if Trump is honest, 63 percent said he is not.

The Quinnipiac poll also asked voters, in an open-ended question, to describe Trump's first year in office in one word. 56% of respondents grade his first year in office as an F or D, the same percentage of his disapproval ratings.

As for the Quinnipiac poll, 59 per cent of those surveyed disapprove of Trump's handling of the Oval Office, while 36 per cent approve.
