    No, it's not correct. 'Every' calls for a singular noun: ... "than every Democrat in Congress".

    But in this sentence it would be better to say 'than all the Democrats in Congress'.

    No. I'm guessing that they meant "any democrat" or "all democrats"

    I'm going so skip the partisan content of the sentence, since this is not the Politics section.

    It would be proper to say,

    "every politician," or "all politicians," but neither "every politicians," nor "all politician."

    The word "democrats" is incorrect, for being plural. Any noun with an adjective "every" would have to be singular.

    That term "democrats" is doubly wrong!!

    I hope you understand my serious joke.

    But gramatically, it depends on whether you want to use a singular term or a plural term.  Here is an example of each:

    singular:

    Every democrat

    (Each and) every democrat

    plural:

    All democrats

    No. It is plainly wrong. With every, the word is democrat. With democrats, the word is all.

    Don Trump jr is really trying to outdo his dad in the idiot category.

    Not sure if he'll succeed, but he is really trying hard.
