Poll: Democrats are Better at Running Local Government

A new survey says Americans think Democrats do a better job at the functions of local government than their Republican counterparts.

The YouGov poll found that Democrats had an edge over Republicans in every category except one. Republicans get a slight nod when it comes to handling the police.

The Democratic Party is preferred by the widest margin when it comes to promoting the Arts, something which four in ten Americans (39%) think would be better left in the hands of the Democrats. The Republican Party, on the other hand, lagged behind the Democrats in every area except policing, where the GOP has a marginal 2-point lead.
