  • Voters See Kavanaugh Impeachment As Long Shot At Best

    While the multiple allegations against Brett Kavanaugh remain unproven, women are more suspicious of the Supreme Court justice than men, but even Democrats don’t expect him to be impeached by Congress.

Seventy percent (70%) consider Kavanaugh’s impeachment unlikely, with 41% who say it’s Not At All Likely. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Voters Fear Economic Impact of Abrupt End to Fracking

    The United States has become the world’s largest producer of oil and natural gas thanks to the use of fracking, an hydraulic drilling practice opposed by many environmentalists.

  • This 9/11, Most Say U.S. Winning War on Terror, But It Isn’t Over

    Eighteen years after the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history, most voters here continue to believe the United States is beating the terrorists but don’t think the War on Terror is over. They’re evenly divided over whether America is a safer place these days.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters think the United States and its allies are winning the War on Terrorism. That’s down slightly from 56% a year ago but consistent with findings since President Trump’s election in November 2016. Prior to that time, this finding generally ran from the mid-20s to the low 40s. Just 16% now believe the terrorists are winning, while 25% say neither side is ahead. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 35% of Likely U.S. Voters now believe illegal immigrants should be eligible for driver’s licenses in their state. That’s up from 28% two years ago and the highest finding in surveys since 2007.

  • 28% of Democrats Say It Should Be Illegal to Join the NRA

    The National Rifle Association is America’s largest gun rights organization with more than five million members. But a sizable number of Democrats views it as a terrorist group and believes it should be against the law for Americans to belong to pro-gun rights organizations like the NRA.

    Following several recent mass shootings, officials in San Francisco declared the NRA a domestic terrorist organization. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that nearly one-out-of-three Likely Democratic Voters (32%) favor declaring the gun rights group a terrorist organization in the community where they live. Fourteen percent (14%) of Republicans and 20% of voters not affiliated with either major party agree. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
