Majority of Voters Says Democratic Party Stands for Nothing - Except Opposing Trump

20 July 2017

Among Americans who did not cast ballots in the last midterm elections, in 2014, Democrats and Republicans are about equally as likely to say they plan to vote in 2018 - suggesting there is not a disproportionate number of newly motivated Democrats ready to come off the sidelines next year.

But 62 percent of respondents said they oppose how Trump uses Twitter to express exactly what he is thinking.

A poll analysis also says the president's approval ratings, which have dropped to 36 percent, could influence how individuals will vote.

Fifty percent of adults in these counties - consisting of Republicans, Democrats and independents - approve of the president's job performance (including 29 percent who strongly approve), while 46 percent disapprove (including 35 percent who do so strongly).

When examining everyone who took part in the poll, a staggering 52% said that they'd rather Congress be controlled by Democrats in order to act as a check on Trump's agenda.

The GOP now has a 24-seat majority in the House and a two-seat majority in the Senate. Donald Trump may be costing his fellow Republicans the 2018 election, yet they continue to support him and look the other way when incriminating evidence is presented in the Trump/Russia investigation.

Moreover, 51 percent of registered voters say Trump won't be a factor in their vote for Congress.

Note: 75 percent of registered voters did not vote for Trump.

While Democrats are heavily targeting the House in 2018, the Senate is seen as a tougher prize.

The phone survey, conducted July 8-12, was administered across 16 states in counties that flipped from supporting former President Barack Obama in 2012 to voting Republican in the most recent election, and counties where support for Trump reached 20 percentage points higher than what Mitt Romney received in 2012.
