Lie Claim Backfires: New Poll Show Voters Think Congress Should Follow Trump’s Lead

New Rasmussen polls show that more voters now think congress should follow the president’s lead.

The rebuttal by democrats last night seems to have backfired as new poll numbers show more voters want congress to follow the president's lead.

According to a new Rasmussen national telephone and online survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters conducted on January 6-7, 2019, the American people are becoming less enamored with congress stalling and obstruction, and think lawmakers should follow President Trump’s lead.

The report found that as voters look toward the new year, “41% say that Congress should do more of what Trump wants, up from 29% in January 2017. Slightly more (48%) say that the president should do what Congress wants, down from 56% in the prior survey. Twelve percent (12%) are undecided.”

This is a massive shift in sentiment.

The site added “that 31% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the new Congress will be better than the one that has served for the past two years. Thirty-four percent (34%) think the new Congress will be worse, while 23% feel it will be about the same. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)”

Although, “Prior to midterm elections, 52% of voters said it would be better for the country if Congress works with Trump most of the time. Thirty-eight percent (38%) thought it’d be better if Congress opposes the president most of the time.”

Many people can guess who those ’38 percent’ are… Hillary lovingly called them ‘basement dwellers.’

“A November survey found that an overwhelming majority (68%) say it is more important for the new Democratic majority in the House of Representatives to focus on policy areas where it can work with the president and his fellow Republicans.

“Fifty-three percent (53%) of Democrats think the new Congress will be better than the one that has served for the past two years, but 52% of Republicans think it will be worse. Among voters not affiliated with either political party, 23% say the new Congress will be better, 39% say it will be worse and 27% say it will be about the same.

“Seventy-four percent (74%) of Democrats believe it would be better for the country if Trump does more of what Congress wants. Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Republicans think it’s best if Congress does more of what the president wants. Unaffiliated voters are evenly divided.

“Older voters have more hope in the new Congress while younger voters are more inclined to believe Trump should follow Congress’ lead.

“Voters are overwhelmingly aware that there’s a partial shutdown of the federal government, but so far at least it isn’t bothering them.

Nancy Pelosi is the most powerful Democrat in Washington, D.C., but voters prefer that Trump lead the way.

“Half of voters believe the president is setting the agenda in Washington, D.C., these days.

Voters give Trump the edge over the new Democratic-controlled House of Representatives when it comes to which will be more beneficial to the next Democratic presidential candidate, but Democrats themselves see the House as a bigger factor.

“Twenty-four percent (24%) rated the old Congress as doing a good or excellent job.”

The polling suggests to many people that voters are less inclined to swallow the democrat/media narrative of the bad orange man. Something that is sure to bother the hypocrites pulling the strings of the democrat party.
