Job Creators Network Reacts to Square/Gallup Poll of Small Business Owners
Washington, D.C. (February 10, 2020)—Today, Square/Gallup released an online survey of small-business owners with annual revenues between $50,000 and $25 million. Among their findings:
- 90% of small-business owners are paying attention to the 2020 campaign.
- 69% say their business benefited from the 2017 tax law.
- 60% approve of the job Donald Trump is doing as president.
- 52% think their business would be better off if Trump is reelected.
“This is an incredible survey because it confirms what JCN’s members have been saying for years: President Trump’s policies are having a major, positive impact on the small business community and our entire economy. Sixty-nine percent of respondents said their business benefited from the 2017 tax law, with more than seven in 10 saying they reinvested over one-quarter of their savings into their business. When you consider that small businesses are responsible for two out of three new jobs, this is arguably the single biggest reason for America’s economic boom. That’s why JCN pushed so hard to enact the tax cuts into law. And that’s why we’re working so hard to defend those tax cuts today. Nearly every Democrat running for President has promised to repeal the Trump tax cuts, which would kill millions of jobs and send our economy into recession. With W-2 season upon us, the Square/Gallup poll couldn’t come at a better time. The data is in, and the answer is clear: President Trump’s policies are working!”
