GOP Senators Tweet Trump in Support of McConnell

A new poll released Thursday by CNN puts Democrats within striking distance of taking back the House of Representatives, according to polling experts. This includes large majorities of Democrats (95 percent) as well as half of Republicans (52 percent) and President Trumps supporters (51 percent).

Paul, R-Bowling Green, said Trump directed his anger at the wrong person when he went after McConnell for failing to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, a pledge McConnell and Republicans have made since 2010.

To push Democrats to work with Republicans on repeal and replace, President Trump has threatened to stop payments that compensate insurers for the Affordable Care Act's cost-sharing reductions, which reduce out-of-pocket costs for lower-income Americans buying insurance through ACA marketplaces.

The president has been smarting from the Senate's failure to pass an overhaul of the Affordable Care Act, a long-standing priority for the GOP and a marquee campaign promise from Trump previous year. Insurers say such a move would force them to leave the health law marketplaces or raise premiums.

About 60 percent of people says that Trump and congressional Republicans are responsible for any problems with the health law.

Now comes the news that a number of GOP senators have been traveling to battleground states and testing the waters to run for president in 2020 against Mr. Trump. "Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!" the president tweeted early Thursday morning.

Of course, pollsters are quick to caution that the generic ballot could change before the election, that gerrymandering makes Democrats' obstacles steep, and that President Donald Trump might pull his approval numbers out of their current tailspin. All of the measures failed to win the 50 votes needed in July.

"I talk to the president a lot", he said.

But in other instances, Republicans and Trump supporters part company with Democrats and independents and strongly back the president's views. And equal shares of respondents (21%) said they want the GOP to continue working on its own replacement bill or to abandon their efforts altogether. Favorable views have increased 9 percentage points since the 2016 presidential election, with the trend occurring among Democrats, independents, and Republicans.

If the media and the establishment try to bring Trump down they are in for a rude awakening.

The survey was conducted between August 1 and 6 and has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.
