Trump's Presence on Campaign Trail Doesn't Excite GOP Voters

Most Republicans plan to vote for a member of Congress who supports President Trump’s agenda, but they have reservations when it comes to the president joining candidates on the campaign trail.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 40% of Likely U.S. Voters say it would hurt political candidates in their state if Trump came to campaign for them. Twenty-eight percent (28%) think it would help those candidates instead, while 21% say a Trump campaign visit would have no impact. Another 12% are not sure.
