Interesting. The three reasons are

"People think the tax cuts favor the wealthy over the middle and working class." "They’re suspicious that tax cuts for businesses are permanent but tax cuts for individuals are temporary." "They think it’s irresponsible to finance the tax cuts with debt that future workers will have to shoulder."

Most of this poll was conducted after Bevin's ...interesting... comments on the teachers' strike. Poll also found 53/16 support for teachers over the governor in the pension crisis.

2019 ain’t looking too good for Bevin.

This is prime pickup territory if Trump is only even in a state as red as KY.

For the governorship.
