Democrats worried about 2018 elections
Democrats are more fearful about what 2018 holds than Republicans, according to a poll released early Monday.While this may just reflect Democrats' anxiety about being out of power, the poll also demonstrates a sense of optimism by Republicans. Except for a few of the never Trumpers, most Republicans have been pleasantly surprised by the accomplishments Trump has put in place in his first year in office. I think that is because Republicans are getting better at filtering out the noise and static created by those who oppose the President and sometimes created by the President himself.
The new Axios survey showed 55 percent of Democrats are more hopeful personally about the new year while 44 percent are more fearful.
Among Republicans, 90 percent are more hopeful about 2018, and just 9 percent are more fearful.
When asked about the world in general, 29 percent of Democrats said they are more hopeful, compared to 70 percent who said they are more fearful.
Pollsters found 67 percent of Republicans are more hopeful about the world in general in the new year, and 32 percent are more fearful.
