  • Most Still Favor Armed Guards in Schools, But Support Is Down

    An armed guard is credited with dramatically limiting a school shooting in Colorado earlier this month, but while most Americans still like the idea of armed school guards, support is down from past surveying.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 61% of American Adults would feel safer if their child attended a school with an armed security guard. That’s down slightly from 66% in February of last year following a massacre at a Florida high school. Just 26% would opt instead for a school where no adults were allowed to carry a gun. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Voters Think Feds, Not States, Should Decide Abortion Policy

    Few voters think it’s too hard to get an abortion in America today, but several states are moving to make it harder. Voters still tend to think abortion policy should be set at the federal level, however.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 28% of Likely U.S. Voters say it’s too hard to get an abortion in the United States, but that’s up from a previous high of 25% in September 2014. Thirty-six percent (36%) say it’s too easy, a finding that has run from 33% to 49% in surveying since 2010. Twenty-four percent (24%) rate the level of difficulty as about right, while 11% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

President Trump's new immigration initiative would achieve both goals -- border security and a new system to admit the immigrants America needs most.
