Republicans Still Identify More With Trump Than GOP Congress

Democrats strongly identify with their congressional representatives, while Republicans still line up more with President Trump than with GOP members of Congress.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 43% of all Likely U.S. Voters say their personal views most closely align with the average Democratic member of Congress. When it comes to the major issues facing the country, 35% say the president's views are closest to their own, while 12% identify most with the average congressional Republican.
