REACH OUT, OR MAYBE NOT
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.
