Democrats are objecting to everything Trump says or does. Their strategy of obstruction is appealing to their far left base but most Americans don’t approve, according to a new poll from Rasmussen.
Here are some details:
Most Say Democrats Hurt Themselves With Anti-Trump Strategy
Most voters agree that it’s bad for America and bad for the Democratic Party if Democrats continue to flat out oppose everything President Trump does. Even Democrats are conflicted about their party’s scorched earth policy.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 29% of all Likely U.S. Voters think it’s better for the country if Democrats oppose the president in every way possible. Sixty-three percent (63%) say it’s better for the country if Democrats try to work with the president instead.
The findings are identical when voters are asked about the impact of the Democrats’ reported strategy on the fortunes of their own party. Just 29% say it’s better for the Democratic Party if Democrats oppose the president in every way possible. Sixty-three percent (63%) disagree and think it’s better for the party if Democrats try to work with Trump.
There is an important lesson here for Democrats but there’s no indication that they’re learning it.
They risk becoming an obsolete political party if they don’t get their act together.
