Today, Fighting Chance for Families released a new poll of likely voters finding that people who have received the checks, and parents overall, overwhelmingly support the program and its extension. Critically, this includes parents who voted for Trump and received the Child Tax Credit who strongly support the policy by a margin of 51-points. Moreover, Trump voters who benefited from the Child Tax Credit strongly support extending it: by a margin of 37-points, Trump voters who received the Child Tax Credit support making it permanent.
The poll also found that across partisanship, people who received the expanded Child Tax Credit created by the American Rescue Plan are strongly supportive of it (by +70 points) and want to see it made permanent (by +54 points). Even after including all voters — including those who did not receive the CTC and are not parents — there is still majority support for the Child Tax Credit: a sample of voters across all demographics support the expanded CTC by a 24-point margin. This includes Democrats by a 67-point margin, Independents by a 16-point margin, and more than a third of Republicans.
