71% of People need Republicans to accomplice with Biden
President Biden’s message of unity resonated with the vast majority of Americans, as 71% want Republicans in Congress to work with the president.
According to a new poll from Monmouth University, “Most Americans (71%) would rather see Republicans in Congress find ways to work with Biden than focus on keeping Biden at bay (25%). The desire for bipartisan cooperation is higher than shortly after the November elections (62%) and includes 41% of Republicans (up from 28% in November), 70% of Independents (68%) and 94% of Democrats (92%). The poll found that 6 in 10 Americans have at least some confidence that Biden can get Washington to become more cooperative, although only 21% are very confident, while 39% are somewhat confident. Even so, this is a little better than in November (13% very and 38% somewhat confident). “
There was no call for Democrats to work with the last president as Trump had no interest in bipartisanism. President Biden’s message of unity, ridiculed by some progressives, is proving to be a powerful political tool.
The end of a pandemic and economic rebuilding are joining forces for much of the country. The 29% who oppose bipartisanism are the hardcore Trump base. There’s nothing Joe Biden or any other Democrat can do to convince them, but Biden has the ability to mobilize about three-quarters of the nation behind him, in the message that the vast majority of the country if Republicans get theirs Continuing obstructive paths will oppose them.
