The latest Monmouth College poll shows Democrats not only are failing on the issues that matter most to Americans, but Democrats are failing on the issues that matter most to Democrats.
Monmouth reported, “Republicans have made slight gains in the public’s preference for party control of Congress since the summer. Currently, 36% of Americans say they want the GOP in charge, and another 11% have no initial preference but lean toward Republican control. Democratic control is preferred by 34% with another 10% leaning toward the Democrats. The combined 47% who choose Republican control is up from 43% in August, while the 44% support level for Democratic control is down from 50%.”
On the two issues that concern Americans most — the economy and crime — Biden’s approval is 30% and 32% respectively.
The poll found that 72% of Republicans are “extremely motivated” to vote. Only 62% of Democrats are.
