Americans Trust GOP More Than Dems on Several Key Issues

A new Politico/Morning Consult poll, released Wednesday, reveals that American voters believe Republicans are better equipped to deal with economic and security issues than Democrats.

The poll, taken from June 7 to June 10, surveyed almost 2,000 registered voters on their views of the situation in Washington.

The results should be encouraging to Republicans, who edged Democrats in several categories. “Who do you trust more to handle each of the following issues?” the poll asked.

  • Economy: 42 percent Republicans, 38 percent Democrats.
  • Jobs: 43 percent Republicans, 38 percent Democrats.
  • Immigration: 41 percent Republicans, 39 percent Democrats.
  • National security: 45 percent Republicans, 31 percent Democrats.

Voters remain evenly divided on the issue of gun policy, with 39 percent of Americans trusting Democrats and 38 percent trusting Republicans.

Democrats did however enjoy the trust of Americans on issues like education, the environment, and health care. But the poll respondents ranked economic and security issues as their top concerns heading into the 2018 midterms.
