Foot-shooting Time

The Washington Times summarizes findings from a recent Rasmussen Reports poll. They write:
A Rasmussen Reports poll released Tuesday found that 63 percent of those surveyed said it was better for the country as well as the Democratic Party (emphasis added) for Democrats to work with President Trump instead of countering him at every turn.

Just 29 percent agreed that it’s better for the party and the nation for Democrats to oppose Mr. Trump “in every way possible.”

Even Democrats polled agreed that the strategy is a loser, albeit barely. The survey found 46 percent said Democrats would be better off working with the White House, while 44 percent said it would be better for the party and country to continue to battle Mr. Trump.
This means those of us who wish the Dems ill should root for their "resistance" to continue. You never want to distract an enemy when he takes aim at his own foot.
