A new poll by Morning Consult for the American Farm Bureau Federation finds that seven out of 10 voters agreed passing tax reform legislation should be a priority for Congress. More than half of voters polled also expressed support for specific tax reform provisions that would benefit farmers and ranchers. AFBF executive director of communications Mace Thornton says the results show the need for tax reform.



The poll of nearly 2,000 registered voters found that many think the current tax system is unfair for farmers and ranchers.



He says that support extends to specific tax issues that are important to farmers and ranchers.
