Republican Voters hate Congressional Republicans too. Who Knew?

If you are a Democrat, Liberal or Independent and you are just disgusted by Congressional Republicans, cheer up. You are not alone. Even Republicans hate Congressional Republicans.



The Quinnipiac University survey released this week found that nearly 62 percent of Republican voters disapprove of the way their party is managing U.S. Congress while 32 percent approve. Overall, 78 percent of Americans told pollsters they disapprove of the job Congressional Republicans are doing.

Fifty seven percent of Americans say Donald Trump is “not fit to serve as president” and by 57 – 36 percent, voters disapprove of the job he is doing as president.

“There is no upside. With an approval rating frozen in the mid-thirties, his character and judgement questioned, President Donald Trump must confront the harsh fact that the majority of American voters feel he is simply unfit to serve in the highest office in the land,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.



The high disapproval numbers break down dramatically along party lines as Democrats and Independents are particularly disapproving of the way Trump handles his job as president.

94 percent of Democrats and 57% of Independents say Trump is unfit while 84 percent of Republicans say he is fit. Men are divided evenly (50% for, 48% against) while 63 percent of women believe he is not fit.

White voters are evenly divided as 50 percent say he is fit and 48 percent say he is not fit while black voters by an overwhelming 94 – 4 percent and Hispanic voters by 60 – 40 percent, say Trump is not fit to be president.






“American voters disapprove 62 – 32 percent of the way President Trump is handling race relations. Disapproval is 55 – 39 percent among white voters, 95 – 3 percent among black voters and 66 – 28 percent among Hispanic voters. By 60 – 35 percent, American voters say President Trump is doing more to divide the country than to unite the country,” Quinnipiac University said.

“The anti-Twitter sentiment remains high as voters by 69 – 26 percent, say that Trump should stop tweeting. No party, gender, education, age or racial group wants to follow the Tweeter-in- Chief. Voters by 51 – 27 percent say they are embarrassed to have Trump as president.”

This does not bode well for Republican majority in Congress going into 2018 midterm elections. 44 percent of Independent voters say they prefer Democrats running congress after 2018 and 47% say they want Democrats to regain control of the U.S. Senate.
