Right. In a big primary field, and with an incumbent president a slight majority of Americans strongly dislike, his proposal doesn’t have to be massively popular among a supermajority of the overall electorate. It just has to be popular among Democrats (check) and not so unpopular among the wider population as to sink his chances to win a general election (check).
