Angry at Trump, Dems set to win in November

Trump speaking in TX (June 2016)The coming midterm elections are still more than four months away – an eternity in politics - but pollster George Barna has already started looking at the trends leading to Election Day.

As you might expect, Americans are in a state of unrest.

According to Barna and his American Culture and Family Institute, two-thirds of the country says it's going in the wrong direction, both politically and culturally.

Seventy-seven percent say it's heading downhill morally, and seven in ten are angry about it all.

Anti-Trump rallyAmericans in both major political parties hold these views but, according to the polling, the mere existence of Donald Trump in the White House has pushed Democrats ahead in energy leading into the midterms.

Not shocking anybody who is paying attention, Barna confirms that Trump is the "main issue" for Democrats as November nears.

He advises that the coming "Blue Wave" has slowed to a ripple but that it will nonetheless benefit Democrats.

"If the election were held today, we would expect that Democrats would do better than average," Barna advises. "Republicans would likely lose a number of seats in the House, perhaps even in the Senate."

In fact, he adds, the GOP is in real danger of losing their Senate majority.

The survey, which polled 1,000 adults in mid-May, also found 45 percent approve of Trump's job as president.
