Trust on Issues

Voters Still Trust GOP More Than Democrats on Economy

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Voters continue to trust Republicans more when it comes to the economy and also have more confidence in the GOP when it comes to another eight of the 15 major issues regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports. 

The economy remains the most important issue to voters in terms of how they will vote in the next congressional election,  and Republicans have a 44% to 40% lead in voter trust in that area, according to new national telephone surveying. Since June 2009, the GOP has led in voter trust on the economy in all but one survey. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology
