GENERAL POLITICS

  • Democrats See Themselves More Like Biden Than AOC

    GOP voters strongly choose President Trump over the top Republican in Congress, while Democrats identify with prospective presidential nominee Joe Biden more than with the young firebrand who increasingly seems to be setting the party’s agenda.

  • Trump vs. Mueller, and The Winner Is …

    Democrats are hoping to find something in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report that will help them impeach President Trump, but maybe their best bet is to make Mueller the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump and Mueller in a virtual tie when it comes to the presidency. Forty-three percent (43%) say Trump would make a better president than Mueller, but just as many (42%) see Mueller as a better chief executive. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Americans Are More Comfortable with Existing Infrastructure

    Repairing America’s infrastructure may be the only thing President Trump and congressional Democrats can agree on, but Americans aren’t nearly as worried about the country’s roads and bridges these days. They’re still not overly enthusiastic about paying for any repairs anyway.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 64% of American Adults regard infrastructure – roads, bridges, dams, tunnels and the like – in the area where they live as safe, with 16% who say it’s Very Safe. Thirty-two percent (32%) disagree and see their local infrastructure as unsafe, but that includes only eight percent (8%) who say it’s Not At All Safe. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of all Likely U.S. Voters think the improving economy is due more to President Trump. Forty-three percent (43%) say it’s primarily due to the policies Obama put in place before he left office. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Hillary Misses Her Presidency More Than Voters Do

    Hillary Clinton’s back in the news, claiming once again that she was robbed in the 2016 election and that President Trump should be impeached. But voters don’t see a Hillary Clinton presidency as a better deal for them.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 42% of Likely U.S. Voters believe America would be better off today if Clinton had been elected president instead of Trump. But a plurality (48%) disagrees. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
