NEW POLL: Culture of Corruption Crushing GOP

We’ve talked a lot of about the costs of Republican corruption to the American people, and we are finally beginning to see the cost that Republicans will have to pay: their seats.

A new poll from CAP Action shows the culture of corruption under Republican control in Washington has dramatically shifted the political landscape in Republican dominated districts around the country.

Democrats now lead by 4 points in districts where Republicans have had 14 point advantages over the past two cycles.

This is good news. But the fight is not over.

Make sure to take a look at our new poll and keep up with Trump’s #CultureOfCorruption.


Today, when asked if he believes Russia is still targeting the U.S., President Trump shook his head and said “no.” And he meant just that – no. This is only the second time this week, and the second time in the past 24 hours that Trump has had to walk back contradicting his own intelligence chiefs.

Despite the White House’s attempts at damage control, we have known for while where Trump stands on Russia.


While speaking to a conservative audience in 2016, Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh made his stance on special counsels clear. When asked, Kavanaugh said that he would overturn a three-decade-old Supreme Court ruling upholding the constitutionality of independent counsels, saying that he would ‘put the nail’ in the ruling upholding the law.

As Senator Schumer said today, there can now be no question he needs to pledge to recuse from any case related to Special Counsel Mueller, but he has no business being confirmed regardless.

The Senate needs to hear you.
