Internal Democratic Polling Shows Trump Bouncing Back

“A leading Democratic group — Priorities USA — is warning party leaders they could squander a strong political climate in 2018 if they don’t start to emphasize pocketbook issues over loose and unfocused critiques of Donald Trump,” McClatchy reports.

“According to internal polling by the super PAC, President Trump’s approval rating climbed to 44% in the first week of February, compared to 53% who disapprove… The memo says that a broad range of metrics show the political climate is still favorable for Democrats. But it also makes an unambiguous diagnosis for Trump’s recent rise: Democrats this year have stopped focusing on economic and health care issues, topics that demonstrably hurt his approval during his first year in office.”
