Despite the media’s deep unhappiness over President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, most Republicans think he did just fine. Democrats and unaffiliated voters disagree.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 35% of all Likely U.S. Voters rate Trump’s handling of his recent meeting with Putin as good or excellent. A plurality (47%) says the president did a poor job. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Voters don’t think Congress cares about them and is more interested in pleasing the media.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters believe what the media thinks matters more to the average member of Congress than what voters think. This shows little change from a year ago but is down from a high of 62% in October 2009 during President Obama’s first year in office.  Just 23% believe Congress cares more about what voters think. A sizable 20% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Tempers are running hot across the political aisle these days, and while voters are as angry at the government as ever, they’re less angry with the media these days.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 69% of Likely U.S. Voters are at least somewhat angry at the current policies of the federal government, including 39% who are Very Angry. This is little changed from August of 2016 prior to President Trump’s election  and consistent with regular surveying since 2009.  Anger with the federal government’s policies peaked at 75% in 2010, the year Republicans regained control of a portion of Congress.

Twenty-four percent (24%) of voters are not angry at the current federal government policies, including eight percent (8%) who are Not At All Angry. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Most Americans still watch network television news in some capacity, and for those viewers, NBC is the most trusted source of political news over rivals CBS and ABC.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 61% of American Adults watch one of the three traditional TV networks—ABC, CBS or NBC—for news in a typical week. This includes 25% who watch network television news every day or nearly every day and another 25% who watch several times a week, as well as 11% who watch once a week or less. Thirty-six percent (36%) of Americans rarely or never watch one of the three traditional TV news networks. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Saturday's White House Correspondents' Association dinner, billed as a celebration of the First Amendment and a tribute to journalists who "speak truth to power," has to be the worst advertisement in memory for our national press corps.
