REACH OUT, OR MAYBE NOT

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

Politics is a form of asym­met­ri­cal war­fare, and many of Pres­i­dent Trump’s fans say he’s the best man to nav­i­gate it, what with his back­ground as busi­ness­man, ty­coon and re­al­ity TV star. But should he make nice with the Democrats?

“Most vot­ers think it’s a great idea,” says a new Ras­mussen Re­ports sur­vey, which re­veals that 66 per­cent of likely U.S. vot­ers agree that it is “good for the coun­try” if Mr. Trump works with con­gres­sional Democrats to ad­vance his agenda.

That num­ber in­cludes a sur­pris­ing 72 per­cent of Repub­li­cans, 63 per­cent of in­de­pen­dents and 62 per­cent of Democrats.

“Just 13 per­cent think the bi­par­ti­san co­op­er­a­tion is bad for the coun­try, while 21 per­cent are un­de­cided. Only 19 per­cent be­lieve the pres­i­dent should con­tinue to rely on con­gres­sional Repub­li­cans to pass his agenda,” the poll re­ports.
