Helping congressional Republicans is the fact that voters trust them more on key issues such as creating jobs (+9) and immigration (+6). The GOP also has a stunning +19 point lead on the issue of national security. Even on the issue of health care, where Democrats usually swamp Republicans, that lead has shrunk to just four points.
There is also positive news for Trump, who now enjoys a 47 percent job approval rating. Trump has been focused on the most popular parts of immigration reform, what he calls the four pillars: legalizing Dreamers, ending chain migration, ending the visa lottery, and building a border wall. Democrats are widely seen as obstructionists on this issue, as the party that shut down the government in response to a reasonable and popular compromise.
Eat shit, shills.
