Independents, who according to national exit polls supported President Trump by four points last November, today give Democrats a six-point lead.
There are other indications of problems for Republicans. Few people like Congress – it has just a 10% approval rating, while the President’s approval rating in this week’s poll is 39%. Just 36% have a favorable assessment of Democrats in Congress. But even fewer rate Congressional Republicans favorably. 15% more people give Republicans in Congress an unfavorable rating than judge Congressional Democrats negatively.
