In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Trump ended the week with a daily job approval of 49%.
- South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is a political newcomer on the national stage, but he runs a close race with President Trump in a new White House Watch hypothetical 2020 matchup.
- Voters think Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report is unlikely to help congressional Democrats impeach President Trump, but they expect reporters to try to hurt the president with it if they can.
- A sizable number of voters don’t agree with the findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, although many of them are not exactly sure why. Most voters think politics is the reason for the criticism.
- Voters still aren’t eager to live in so-called sanctuary communities, and they tend to support President Trump’s proposal to send illegal immigrants to those communities.
- President Trump continues to question the monetary moves of the Federal Reserve Board, but voters give the central bank its highest approval in years. They also suspect that the Fed is less independent of the president than it was during the Obama years.
- Amazon’s virtual assistant Alexa is an increasing presence in American households, but most suspect that the online mega-retailer is using it to spy on customers.
- Forty-one percent (42%) of voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
