  • Voters More Likely to Credit Trump for Economy Over Obama

    With the unemployment rate still among 18-year lows and the Dow Jones Industrial Average still among all-time highs, voters are slowly giving President Trump more credit than President Obama for the improving economy, though there remains a stark partisan divide. Voters agree, though, that impeaching Trump would be a detriment to the nation’s economy.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters now believe the improving economy is due more to Trump than Obama, while 40% think it is more the result of the policies Obama put in place before he left office.

  • Voters Don’t See Manafort Charges Leading to Any Charges Against Trump

    President Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, is currently on federal trial in Virginia on bank and tax fraud charges. But while voters are following news of his indictment closely, they don’t see it snowballing into criminal charges against the president.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 37% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is even somewhat likely that the charges against Manafort and a close business associate will lead to criminal charges against Trump, including just 14% who think it’s Very Likely. Most voters (52%) don’t see criminal charges against Trump stemming from the Manafort charges as likely, including 26% who say it’s Not At All Likely. Another 11% are undecided.

  • Trump's Full-Month Approval Slips for Fourth Month Straight

    When tracking President Trump’s job approval on a daily basis, people sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations that they miss the bigger picture. To look at the longer-term trends, Rasmussen Reports compiles the numbers on a full-month basis, and the results for Trump’s presidency can be seen in the graphics below.

    The president earned a monthly job approval of 46% in July, down one point from June and another step down from 49% in April, his high for the year to date. Fifty-two percent (52%) disapproved of his job performance last month, up one point from the month before.

  • Cohen Tapes Aren’t A Smoking Gun for Voters in Next Election

    The FBI is in possession of taped recordings of President Trump and his former attorney Michael Cohen discussing payment for a former Playboy model’s story of an alleged affair prior to Trump’s election. But while most voters are following this news closely, they’re split over its impact on their vote.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters consider the contents of those recordings at least somewhat important to their vote in the next election, including 28% who say they are Very Important. Just as many (48%), however, do not consider those recordings important to their vote, with another 28% who say they are Not At All Important. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • More Republicans Align With Trump, Not Congress
