A solid majority of voters say Democrats in Congress are too liberal in their ideology and agree with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and do not want to "fundamentally transform America," the latest Rasmussen Reports poll found.

Not only do 55% of likely voters see Democrats as too liberal on issues, but an even stronger 64% agree with McConnell's quote made after Democrats failed to pass partisan election reforms.

The poll asked voters if they agreed with McConnell's statement: "The American people are closely divided ... There's not a mandate to fundamentally transform America into something it's never been. That's not what the voters voted for."

Even a majority of Democrats (53%) agreed, and there were 42% of all voters who strongly agreed and just 20% who disagreed, according to the poll.

On Republican ideology, 36% of voters say the GOP is too conservative, 33% say the party is about right and 21% say it is too moderate.

Among independent or third-party voters, 60% think Democrats are too liberal compared to 26% who say Republicans are too conservative, according to the poll.

The Daily Presidential Tracking Poll by Rasmussen Reports on Friday had President Joe Biden's approval at just 41% and 57% disapproval. That includes 47% who strongly disapprove, and just 20% who strongly approve for a Presidential Approval Index rating of -27.

Rasmussen Reports polled 1,000 U.S. likely voters Jan. 20-23, and the results have a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. The daily tracking poll surveys 500 likely voters a night and renders a three-day rolling average among the 1,500 polled.
