CBS News Poll Shows Nearly 75% Of Americans Disapprove Of Congress

A retired attorney and GOP donor is suing the Republican Party for

To put the final nail in the coffin of the opposition (Republicans, Democrats and the failing mainstream media) President Trump needs victories in three areas: legislative, the court of public opinion, and national defense and diplomacy.

Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents are more positive about their leaders in Congress (50% approve) than are Republicans and GOP-leaning independents about their leaders (39% approve).

Thirty-four percent of respondents approve of Democratic leaders in Congress, compared to 59 percent who disapprove.

The way that the party's conservative majority has been resisting the concerns of more moderate senators and Republican governors raises the question whether this widening split could become a full-fledged rupture, leading to the first real three-way presidential race since Ross Perot's candidacy in 1992.

And while 19 percent of voters who say Congress didn't get much done are glad, because their priorities weren't right, 73 percent feel frustrated by the unfinished business. If the Democrats had nominated Bernie Sanders, our current presidents name would be Sanders, not Trump.

And for those Republicans who vote against this?

In 2016, Trump lost the national popular vote by 2.1 percentage points, but Republicans won the median House seat by 3.4 points and the median Senate seat by 3.6 points - that's the widest Senate gap in at least a century and tied with 2012 for the widest House disparity in the last half-century. However, it's definitely a long-shot, Wasserman says, citing the 2010 scenario in which Democrats were able to obtain 60 senate seats, enabling them to pass Obamacare.

It seems highly unlikely that someone like Kasich, whose term as governor ends in 2019, could wrest the Republican nomination from Trump.

The majority of Americans (56%) want the two parties to work together to make changes to health care policy, according to CNN's survey.

Democrats are also playing the Trump card ahead of a September 26 special election in Miami to fill the Senate District 40 seat of former Republican Sen.

The poll was conducted nationwide by phone on August 2-6 among 1,017 United States citizens.
