"Without a doubt, Donald Trump's personal style was part of his appeal in the 2016 campaign", said Democratic pollster Fred Yang, who conducted the survey with Republican Bill McInturff told WSJ.

Those latter numbers include Republican-leaning and Democratic-leaning independents, but nonetheless, it paints a peculiar picture of the likely electorate, albeit more than one year out from the next major slate of House and Senate races. Trump, who's yet to secure a major legislative victory, suggested this week that lawmakers let Obamacare "fail" and put the blame on Democrats.

Now, it seems, the potential for a Democratic wave rides on whether the party can turn out voters who have tended to skip past midterm elections.

They only disagree about strategy and timing. Just 38% said they wanted Congress to remain in control by Republicans, while 10% of those surveyed said that they had no opinion. Only 24 percent supported the habit.

Moreover, 51 percent of registered voters say Trump won't be a factor in their vote for Congress.

Needless to say, the top, headline number in the poll is still encouraging for Democrats, especially considering they have ample time to hammer out the policies and defining principles they intend to run on.

Fifty-two percent of registered Republicans say they'll vote to back up the president, while a smaller share of registered Democrats, 41 percent, say they'll vote to oppose him. Just over half of voters say Trump will not be a factor in their votes.

This Washington Post-ABC News poll was conducted from July 10-13, prior to the collapse of the GOP health care plan, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

While Democrats are heavily targeting the House in 2018, the Senate is seen as a tougher prize.
