Americans: New Congress should provide check on White House, follow investigation facts

Our new NAVIGATOR post-election survey provides the first message guidance for progressive communicators and Democratic leaders in defining the agendas of the 116th Congress and President Trump.

Visit NavigatorResearch.org to read our full post-election memo.

There are 5 key takeaways:

  • Check and balance. Americans want newly-empowered Democrats in Congress to provide a strong “check and balance” on Trump administration policies.
  • Play your strengths. Democrats arrive in Washington with credibility on some of the major issues from the midterms — including health care, corruption, and gun violence.
  • Less toxicity. The midterms were about change, and one part of that is Americans want less of the toxic politics that Trump has made his brand.
  • Focus on facts. When talking about investigations or oversight, Democrats should be careful to focus on the facts, rather than process.
  • Engage on the economy. Democrats have a strong case to make on the economy and can persuade constituents they are on the side of working and middle-class people.
