The infrastructure bill is losing support, mostly among Republicans

President Biden is about to sign into law the long-awaited bipartisan infrastructure bill, after House Democrats and 13 Republicans secured paragraph over a week ago.

Unfortunately for public opinion, however, it appears the GOP message surrounding the bill has been “withheld,” notes Morning consultationCameron Easley. House Republicans who voted for the bill, which passed on a bipartisan basis in the Senate, are said to be being treated like traitor.

A new poll from Morning consultation and Politico found overall support for the law among voters down to 50% from 58% in mid-August — “immediately after the Senate passed the bill,” wrote Politico – and 56% in September, Easley noted.

Notably, although support among Democrats (about 80 percent) and independents (about 45 to 50 percent) remained steady, there was a “significant drop” among Republicans, write Politico. Only 22% of GOP voters now support the bill, down 18 percentage points from mid-August.

Actually, write Politico, Republican support “has dropped 10 points in the past two weeks, as Morning consultation polled voters after the House passed the bill. “
