  • 40% Say U.S. Heading in Right Direction

    Forty percent (40%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey for the week ending February 7.

    This week’s finding is up nine points from last week following Trump's State of the Union speech and parallels a similar rebound in his daily job approval ratings.  Prior to this, that number had been on the decline week-over-week from 43% in early December.  It ran in the mid- to upper 20s for much of 2016, President Obama's last full year in office.
