Democrats have a 10-point lead over Republicans when the item comes to voter preferences for which party should control Congress, according to the results of the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, in spite of President Donald Trump’s own numbers inching higher.
Fifty percent of registered voters said they’d prefer a Democrat-controlled Congress inside latest survey, while forty percent picked Republican. Democrats also enjoyed a 12-point lead over Republicans among independent voters.
The same poll found which Trump’s approval rating has inched higher at 43 percent among all Americans, up four points coming from January.
Fifty-three percent of adults say they disapprove of the president’s job, down coming from 57 percent two months ago.
the item could be a signal of a strong performance for the Democrats, say the experts, although the change coming from two months ago can be within the poll’s margin of error. The Democrats’ have had the wind at their backs recently, having won two closely watched special elections: Last week’s Congressional election in Pennsylvania, in addition to last year’s vote for the Alabama Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions.
“Trumpism may well help Donald Trump in his 2020 election, although the buck stops there — which can be a flashing red light for Republicans in 2017 or 2018,” Democratic pollster Fred Yang, who conducted the poll with GOP pollster Bill McInturff, told NBC News.
