Dem pollster: Clinton showed that being against Trump is not enough to win

"With Hillary Clinton, we saw that just being against Trump isn't enough," Cooperman, who is a partner at Schoen Consulting, told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking."

“There is so much anger and passion in the Democratic Party right now to come out against Trump, but I do not think that will be enough," she continued. “The Democrats need more than just that, and they need to have ideas that they're articulating in terms of immigration and the economy."

Cooperman's comments come as Democrats prepare to face off against Republicans in the November midterm elections, with Republicans seeking to defend a narrow majority in the Senate and fend off Democrats trying to retake the House.

Democratic candidates and incumbents have recently lashed out against the Trump administration's controversial "zero tolerance" immigration policy that led to the separation of migrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border, among other criticisms.
