A Suffolk University and USA Today poll found that 62 percent of voters have an unfavorable view of the Republican party, a sharp leap from 55 percent in June. The Democrats were seen as unfavorable by 48 percent of voters.
“The Republican Party is in freefall, ” David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center in Boston said in a statement. “In March, the GOP had a 48 percent unfavorable rating, in June the negative swelled to 55 percentage. Today the GOP unfavorable is 62 percent. What’s next? ”
The poll found that 43 percent of voters trust Democrat in Congress to protect the “interests of their families” when it comes healthcare, compared to 15 percent who suppose President Donald Trump would protect their interests and just 10 percent of people who guess Republicans would have their interests at heart.

Nearly 57 percent of people polled want a Congress to stand up to Trump while merely 33 percent believe Americans should elect a Congress that runs along with the president’s wants. Overall, Trump’s unfavorability rating reached 57 percentage, according to the poll.
The poll found that 64 percentage of Americans guess the country is “on the wrong track, ” a leap from 56 percent in June.
