(PatriotHeadline.com)- A new poll shows just how vindictive Democrats can be, showing that some 40% of Democratic Party voters are “happy” that President Donald Trump contracted COVID-19. The poll from Politico and Morning Consult was released less than a day after President Trump confirmed he and First Lady Melanie Trump had tested positive for the Chinese virus.
The survey asked 905 registered voters on Friday afternoon, finding roughly 40% being “surprised” by the news and roughly another 40% saying they were “worried.”
The results got particularly interesting, however, when split along party lines. Some 55% of Republicans said that they were “sad” about the news but only 24% of Democrats said the same. Perhaps even more worryingly, some 40% of Democrats said that the news made them “happy.”
When the President of the United States contracts a deadly virus, many might expect politics to go out of the window. Even former President Barack Obama and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden wished the president well on Twitter.
Jill and I send our thoughts to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for a swift recovery. We will continue to pray for the health and safety of the president and his family.

But it seems like Democratic voters just don’t feel the same way. At the very least, many Democrats – some 41% – said that they were “indifferent” over the news. Meaning, possibly, that they don’t care whether he lives or dies.
Some 55% of respondents also said that they don’t believe the president will offer accurate updates and information about his health.
The poll was taken before President Donald Trump was transferred to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, which was described as a move taken “out of an abundance of caution.”
President Donald Trump remains in the medical center where he continues to perform his duties as president in a suite specifically designed for the president.
With a margin of error of +/- 3%, the results still suggest that a huge portion of Democratic voters are happy to see someone they disagree with politically contract a deadly virus.
