Poll: 56% of Dems Want Leaders to Block Trump

Fifty-six percent of Democrats say party's elected officials in Congress should stop President Trump’s efforts, even “if that means blocking all legislation or nominees for government posts,” according to a new Politico and Morning Consult poll. Only 34 percent of those same voters surveyed said they believe party leaders should find common ground to work with the White House. The survey was conducted among 2,070 registered voters from Feb. 2 to Feb. 4. “There was talk after the election that Trump might be a president who Democrats could work with, at least on certain issues like infrastructure,” said Kyle Dropp, Morning Consult’s chief research officer and co-founder. “But this new data indicates that, even if deals are possible, that’s not primarily what Democratic voters are looking for.”
