Voters in Trump Counties Support His Policies, Not His Style

Voters in Trump Counties Support His Policies, Not His Styleā€¯

What it also has shown is that an overwhelming number of Democrats who never voted in the last 2014 mid-term, plan to vote come 2018.

While 38 percent of respondents say they prefer Republican control of Congress after 2018, to help enact President Donald Trump's agenda, 52 percent prefer Democratic control.

Trump's low approval rating, which dropped to 36 percent from 42 percent in April, could also be significant if it fails to improve in the next year.

Fifty percent of adults in these counties - consisting of Republicans, Democrats and independents - approve of the president's job performance (including 29 percent who strongly approve), while 46 percent disapprove (including 35 percent who do so strongly). Historically, the party in the White House tends to lose congressional seats in midterm elections.

Those latter numbers include Republican-leaning and Democratic-leaning independents, but nonetheless, it paints a peculiar picture of the likely electorate, albeit more than one year out from the next major slate of House and Senate races.

Moreover, 51 percent of registered voters say Trump won't be a factor in their vote for Congress. Seventy-five percent of respondents approved of his methods, while only 14 percent opposed them.

In addition, 29 percent said he sets a bad example for the United States when he makes personal attacks; 62 percent said they dislike his use of Twitter; 53 percent dislike Trump's refusal to release his personal tax returns; and 51 percent disagree on how Trump is handling Russia's interference of the 2016 election. Of the eight GOP seats, forecasters and party campaign committees consider only two to be genuinely competitive.

The poll did not ask a generic congressional ballot question - an indicator often cited by party strategists - but recent polls show that voters favor Democrats over Republicans for Congress by between six and 10 percentage points when asked whom they would rather vote for.
