Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is cautioning Democrats that their path to defeating U.S. President Donald Trump depends on independents and moderates.

The president now faces accusations of incompetence and ill-preparedness to handle the top job while having put together several legal teams to handle accusations of rape and his alleged "collusion" with Russian Federation.

There are sharp partisan splits on both questions, with about 8 in 10 Republicans calling it inappropriate for a White House official to act against the president.

While some of the president's advisers, Axios' source said, tried "to make the case that control of the House didn't matter", Trump has realized that it could "make all the difference in the world", not only in the context of his impeachment but also in relation to Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election interference.

Last year's tax overhaul set the individual changes to expire at the end of 2025 for budget reasons, since the bill was approved through a special process that allowed it to pass with a simple majority.

It would also eliminate the maximum age for some retirement account contributions and let new businesses write off more start-up costs.

Republicans, however, said by 62 to 11 percent that Congress does enough to check Trump.

Just 38% of registered voters said they would vote for Republican House candidates, while 52% said they'd vote for Democrats.

President Donald Trump signed the $1.5 trillion tax overhaul into law past year.

The amount the tax cut 2.0 legislation would add to the deficit would likely outweigh any economic growth stemming from the cuts, according to Alan Viard, a resident scholar at the right-leaning think tank American Enterprise Institute.

Asked whether they believe that Trump "should be impeached and removed from office", or not, 47% said Trump should be impeached while 48% said they don't feel that way.

Trump's low approval ratings nationwide come as his administration fights off allegations of chaos within his administration in Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear", as well as claims in a recent anonymous New York Times op-ed article of a "quiet resistance" against the president within the White House. They tout a report by the Tax Foundation that forecast the creation of 1.5 million jobs and wage increases if the temporary individual tax cuts are made permanent.
