A strong majority of Americans say Democrats should look to cooperate with President Trump to strike deals, according to the inaugural Harvard-Harris poll
The survey found that 73% of voters want to see Democrats work with Trump, against only 27% who said Democrats should resist Trump’s every move. The findings are significant as Democratic leaders in Congress are under growing pressure by their liberal base to obstruct the president’s agenda. The poll shows that the party is divided on how to deal with Trump: 52% of Democrats polled say they should cooperate with him on areas of agreement and 48% saying that they shouldn’t.
