there goes the neighborhood
President Trump may call Washington, D.C., home, but his neighbors are none too pleased about it. Since January, 1 in every 3 people living in the U.S. capital has protested against Trump or his policies, a Washington Post poll has found.
High-income Washingtonians and white Washingtonians are among the most common protesters; while 53 percent of white residents have demonstrated against Trump, only 16 percent of African Americans have. Most Washingtonians, 54 percent, still say Trump has changed the city "some" or "a lot."
"I'm used to stuff not going my way" said one resident, Justina Jackson, 28, who like 90 percent of the city's electorate voted for Hillary Clinton in November. "There's always some kind of obstacle I have to overcome just because I'm a young African-American female. I don't have a lot of sympathy for people who are upset about Trump."
"Given the ups and downs of the first five months, I'm surprised that we're not dead yet,” said another resident, Sarah Ronnebaum, 37. "The least I can do is show up."
In February, Fox News found that 14 percent of voters across the country had attended a demonstration since November. The Washington Post poll reached 901 D.C. residents between June 15-18, with a 4-point margin of error.
