SHOCK: Internal Dem Polling Shows Trump And GOP On The Rise

So, here’s a fact for you. A top Democratic group is warning party leaders that they’re in danger of blowing what should be a political advantage in 2018 if they continue to ignore what Americans care most about while haranguing President Trump with nonstop frivolous attacks.

Rojas, who lodged a formal complaint with the U.S. Department of Health last month, had filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against Winnebago County in 2016, but the County slowed down her suit by claiming it had a near-universal right to force Rojas into compliance with its new policy.
