  • Should Women Vote First for Women?

    Prominent female supporters of Hillary Clinton declared over the weekend that women voters have an obligation to vote for a woman candidate, but voters overwhelmingly reject that notion.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only four percent (4%) of Likely U.S. Voters believe it is more important for women to vote for a woman candidate because she is a woman. Ninety-one percent (91%) disagree and place more importance on where the woman candidate stands on the issues. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • The Democrats: Bernie’s Blowout By Larry J. Sabato, Kyle Kondik and Geoffrey Skelley

    That Bernie Sanders won New Hampshire was not a surprise. That he won by so much is. It’s a tremendous shot in the arm for his campaign and a jarring setback for Hillary Clinton.

    Keep this in mind: While we and many others have been suggesting for months that Clinton could lose New Hampshire and Iowa (which she very barely won), most of the rest of the country does not follow politics nearly as closely as we do. To these voters, the idea of Clinton losing to Sanders by over 20 points is going to seem shocking. It could lead to some perilous times for the Clinton campaign, which already was rocked by reports of infighting and rumors of potential staff changes even before New Hampshire voted. There may be many Barack Obama campaign veterans working for Clinton, but one thing she couldn’t import from the campaign that beat her eight years ago was its “No Drama Obama” mantra.

  • Most Still Know Someone Out of Work

    Most Americans still know someone searching for a job, but it’s at an all-time low.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 63% of American Adults know someone who is out of work and looking for a job, but that’s the lowest finding since regular Rasmussen Reports surveying began in 2010. That number didn’t even drop into the 60s until mid-2013.  Half as many (31%) do not know anyone job-seeking, the first time that number has topped 30% ever.
