Voters Falling Out Of Love With Democrats

Mike Reed - February 14, 2018

Voters have no love for Democrats right now.

Congressional polls are tightening, and President Trump is polling higher than President Obama did at the same point in his presidency.

Today, the new Politico/Morning Consult poll found Republicans leading in the generic congressional ballot 39 percent to 38 percent. 

Furthering this trend, Democrat Super Pac Priorities USA’s latest internal poll found President Trump’s approval rating has improved 4 points from November 2017.

They also found Republicans closing the gap in the November 2018 generic ballot.

Priorities USA’s conclusion was to tell Democrats to “reassert control over the economic narrative if they are going to maximize electoral success.”

However, the economic narrative is trending in favor of Republicans.

According to the Morning Consult, President Trump’s approval rating is improving BECAUSE of the economy.

While Trump’s net approval rating remained 7 points underwater in January — with 44 percent of registered voters approving of his job performance and 51 percent disapproving — the number represents a 2-point bump compared with his rating in September and a 4-point bump from October and November. … Some experts suggest Trump’s improved standing with the public, and Republican voters in particular, was partly due to rosy economic indicators during this period — from stock market gains to strong employment figures — and Republican lawmakers’ overhaul of the country’s tax code“The improvement in Trump’s approval rating since the fall “most fundamentally reflects the economy,” Allan Lichtman, a political historian at American University, said in a Feb. 4 interview. (Morning Consult, 2/13/2018)

Since President Trump and Republicans in Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, millions of Americans have received bonuses, higher wages, and better benefits even before the bill has gone into full effect.
