'Trump county' voters support policies but not style

  • President Donald Trump listens as he is introduced during the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington

Voters in counties that opted for President Donald Trump remain solidly in support of his agenda despite their growing weariness toward some of his more unorthodox behavior, a Wall Street Journal/NBC News Poll found Wenesday.

Even more surprising is the fact that when the results were narrowed down to those who did not vote in 2014 but are certain to vote come 2018, the gap widened further. "For one thing, Americans who strongly disapprove of Trump do not appear to be any more motivated to vote than the average American".

The fundraising disparity comes on the heels of the state Democratic Party suffering deep losses in the fall election and as it gears up to help U.S. Sen.

Furthermore, not everyone who disagrees with Republicans is a Democrat.

But as President Trump and Senate Republicans are learning to their great displeasure, that was not the case.

More than a third of self-identified liberals (34%) said the Democratic Party stood for nothing but opposing Trump, while 56% felt it stood for something more. 64% of these individuals said that they wanted Congress to be controlled by Democrats, whereas just 30% said that they were happy with the status quo. Just over half of voters say Trump will not be a factor in their votes.

"While Democrats are heavily targeting the House in 2018, the Senate is seen as a tougher prize", notes the Post. Of the eight GOP seats, forecasters and party campaign committees consider only two to be genuinely competitive.

The poll, conducted from July 13 to 15, found that 81 percent of Democrats rank a Trump-Russia probe well ahead of a number of national priorities, perhaps suggesting the nearly six-month-old administration has further distracted the public from serious problems.
