  • Do America’s Best Days Still Lie Ahead?

    Voters still tend to think America’s best days are already behind us, but a climbing optimism that they’re still to come remains.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters think America’s best days are in the past, up from 45% in April and generally in line with surveys since 2006. Thirty-seven percent (37%) now think the nation’s best days are in the future. While unchanged from April, it ties that month’s high since 2013. Fifteen percent (15%) are not sure.

  • Is the GOP on the Brink of Civil War?

    Senator Ted Cruz voiced the unhappiness of many Republican conservatives when he took to the floor of the Senate last Friday and in a rare intraparty broadside accused GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell of lying. Veteran Republican senators quickly rallied to McConnell’s defense.

    Was it the shot fired at Fort Sumter that signals the real start of a GOP civil war?

  • Bigger Threat - al-Qaeda or ISIS?

    FBI Director James Comey recently announced that the radical Islamic State group (ISIS) now poses a bigger security threat to the United States than al-Qaeda does.  Americans appear to agree.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 68% of Likely U.S. Voters think ISIS is a Very Serious threat to the United States. That compares to 58% who feel that way about al-Qaeda, the organization responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks, among others. Another 23% consider ISIS a somewhat serious threat to the homeland, while 32% say that of al-Qaeda.

    Only eight percent (8%) rate each group as a not very or Not At All Serious security threat. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
