More Voters Think GOP - If You Count Trump As A Republican

Voters identify more with Republicans than Democrats when it comes to the issues – unless you regard President Trump as a party of his own.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that when thinking about the major issues facing the country, 44% of Likely U.S. Voters say their views are closest to the average Democratic member of Congress. Just 13% identify most with the average Republican member of Congress, but 37% say their views are closest to GOP President Trump. This marks little change from a year ago.
