In The 4PM poll Friday, readers overwhelmingly said President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better Act was doomed after it failed to pass ahead of Christmas as promised.
6% of readers said the massive social spending and climate package would pass in its $1.7 trillion form.
We will – we must – get Build Back Better passed, even in the face of Republican opposition.

13% of readers said it would pass with a much lower price tag.

81% of readers said it would never pass, a premonition dramatically confirmed Sunday by Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va.
Joe Manchin knew damn well he was never gonna support President Biden’s Build Back Better bill. He could have said that last spring and spared us all the months of unnecessary drama. https://t.co/TB9rlE98YT
