A 62 percent majority of Americans said they blame congressional Republicans and President Donald Trump for failing to hash out an agreement for $j2,000 stimulus relief checks.

National polling data from Data for Progress, a progressive think tank, released Friday from among 1,166 likely voters found that 47 percent blame Republicans in Congress and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell specifically—while just 15 percent blame Trump for not supporting the $600 to $2,000 direct payment increase earlier, Newsweek reported.

About one-third of Americans surveyed (32 percent) said they blame congressional Democrats and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for failing to push the $2,000 check legislation through both chambers.

The same polling center released data that found 81 percent of likely voters prefer $2,000 checks over $600, with just more than half hoping for a Democratic-controlled Senate following the January 5 Georgia runoff election.

The majority of Americans surveyed in the latest Data for Progress polls do appear to blame Republicans (62 percent). But progressives have become split after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer led several Democrats Friday in pushing through a defense spending bill which Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders wanted to use as leverage for $2,000 checks. The push for $2,000 direct payments amid the coronavirus pandemic is now all but over, even though it marked a rare instance in which Trump, a handful of Senate Republicans and congressional Democrats all finally agreed on a relief bill.


“Turns out supporting a $2000 survival check is not only good policy but good politics. In few days, with Democratic Senate and House we can pass it and have it be recurring monthly during the pandemic,” tweeted Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, sharing a link to the poll Friday.

But critics responded to Omar’s sharing of the Data for Progress polls that show blame being pointed at Republicans, with many asking why she and others voted in favor of the $600 checks in the first place. Many responses wondered why Democrats didn’t leverage Senate Republicans for the $2,000 checks.

“Which Democratic senators actually support the $2000 checks, though? So far, at least 41 of them don’t seem to think it is much of a priority, but they moved hella quick to defeat Bernie’s filibuster alongside their Republican friends to overfund the Pentagon,” wrote Utah resident Josh Bowden.

The Data for Progress polling data released Thursday echoed Omar’s hopes for a Democratic majority swing in the upcoming Georgia runoffs. Democratic Senate challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock must defeat GOP incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in order to regain slim control of the Senate.

Video: Trump is “plotting revenge” against his traitors – Jackman



US Studies Centre CEO Simon Jackman says all reports are that Donald Trump is “plotting revenge” against those members and senators who voted against him in his second impeachment matter.

Donald Trump is expected next Sunday to make his first public appearance since leaving office.

The former US president, who departed the White House on 20 January, is set to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida.


Mr Trump is reportedly planning to address his second impeachment trial, where he was acquitted by the Senate of inciting the rioting at the US Capitol on 6 January.

He is also expected to give his views on the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement.
