New Poll: Americans Agree Trump Is Beating Media, Democrats


A new Rasmussen poll suggests that Frank Cannon is right: Donald Trump is winning his war with the media and the Democrats. The attempt to “de-normalize” the Trump administration is failing.

Just 29 percent of likely U.S. voters think it’s better for the country if the Democrats oppose President Trump in every way possible. Sixty-three percent say Democrats should work with President Trump instead.

Strikingly, even a plurality of Democrats (46 percent to 44 percent) believe it’s better for the country if the Democrats work with President Trump instead of opposing him across the board. Immediately after the November elections, by contrast, Democrats wanted to stand up and fight rather than work with President Trump by a 2-to-1 margin, 64 percent to 32 percent.

“After so many years of Republican leaders getting bullied by the media, it’s enough to give hope to even a bitter conservative political veteran like me,” wrote APP’s president Frank Cannon.

Three months of across-the-board hysterical behavior from liberal Democrats and their media allies is turning off even the Democrats’ likely voters.
