The majority of Americans think Republicans and Democrats in the capital ought to compromise rather than fight, according to a new CNN/ORC poll.

  • 72 percent want to see President Donald Trump try to reach out to Democrats on bills.
  • 25 percent would rather Trump pass laws without Democratic support.
  • 69 percent said Democrats in Congress should attempt to work with Trump.
  • 30 said the party should resist Trump's actions.

The poll also found few voters view the government as representing the views of the people.

Nine percent said the government represents the views of the people "very well."

  • 22 percent said "somewhat well."
  • 23 percent said "not too well."
  • 35 percent said "not at all well."

Currently, Republican efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act have met with strong resistance from Democrats. Politico reported Democrats in the House pushed "meaningless votes" Wednesday and demanded the entire text of the GOP healthcare bill be read aloud.

"We're going through the inevitable growing pains of being an opposition party to becoming a governing party," House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., said in a news conference Wednesday morning. "And in being an opposition party, we had divided government."

Trump reportedly told conservative leaders in an Oval Office meeting if the GOP healthcare plan fails to pass, his plan is to let Obamacare fail and place the blame on Democrats, according to CNN.
