Most Say Trump’s Call for Unity Will Go Nowhere

Despite President Trump’s call for unity in this week’s State of the Union address, most voters don’t expect Democrats in Congress to respond and blame partisan politics for the gridlock.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 33% of Likely U.S. Voters think the president and Democrats in Congress will be able to work together on at least some basic issues, and that includes just eight percent (8%) who say it’s Very Likely. Sixty-four percent (64%) consider compromise between the two sides to be unlikely, with 19% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
