ABC/WaPost Poll: Democrats Out of Touch with The People
Democrats are trending in the wrong direction, too, according to ABC News.
A majority of Americans (67%) say the Democratic Party is out of touch with the concerns of the American people, even more so than the Republican Party or President Donald Trump according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll.
President Trump is more in touch with American people, 38% say, than the Republican Party (32%) or Democrats (just 28%). Democrats are trending in the wrong direction, too, according to ABC News.
“That’s a steeply negative turn for the Democrats, 19 percentage points more critical than when last asked three years ago, including especially steep losses in their own base,” the poll noted.
In its March 2014 poll, 48% said the Democrats were out of touch with the American people.
“The biggest change has occurred chiefly among the party’s own typical loyalists, with ‘out of touch’ ratings up 33 points among liberals, 30 points among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents, and 26 points among moderates and nonwhites alike,” ABC News reported.
The poll was conducted via landline and cell phone 17-20 April 17-among 1,004 adults with a margin of plus or minus 3.5 points.
Have a terrific week.
