TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

  • Daily Presidential Tracking Poll

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-two percent (52%) disapprove.

    The latest figures include 33% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 43% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -10. (see trends).

  • Trump Seen As Better Leader But Still Too Confrontational

    Voters have a more favorable opinion of President Trump’s leadership these days, but they still think he’s too confrontational.

    Forty-five percent (45%) of Likely U.S. Voters now rate the president as a good or excellent leader, up from 39% a year ago and 38% just after his inauguration in 2017. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 43% still rate Trump’s performance as poor, but that’s down from 48% last March. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Trump’s Full-Month Approval Bounces Back to 2018 Levels

    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 49% in February, rebounding five points from January and recapturing the high ground he held for most of 2018. In January, Trump’s job approval had fallen to its lowest level in a year, but it has turned around since his well-received State of the Union address. Fifty percent (50%) still disapproved of his job performance last month, but that’s down from 55% in January.

    Daily tracking results are collected via telephone and online surveys of 500 likely voters per night. The monthly numbers in this article are based on approximately 10,000 interviews each month with likely voters. The margin of sampling error is less than +/- 1 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

  • Voters Say Impeachment Unlikely, Trump Reelection Instead

    Despite former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s much-ballyhooed testimony before Congress last week and congressional Democrats’ big investigative push against the president, voters don’t see impeachment in the cards. But they give Democrats a better chance of winning the White House in 2020.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is likely that investigations by congressional Democrats will produce evidence that leads to the impeachment of President Trump, but 53% consider that unlikely. This includes 24% who say the Democrats are Very Likely to find evidence that leads to impeachment and 29% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • GOP Voters Say Trump A Cinch for Renomination

    At least two former governors, William Weld of Massachusetts and John Kasich of Ohio, are reportedly considering Republican primary challenges to President Trump, but GOP voters overwhelmingly approve of the job Trump is doing and consider him a shoo-in for renomination.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 88% of Likely Republican Voters believe it’s likely Trump will be the GOP presidential nominee in 2020, with 70% who say it’s Very Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Most See Crime in Justice, FBI ‘Coup’ Against Trump, Want Special Prosecutor

    Most voters say top Justice Department and FBI officials are likely to have acted criminally when they secretly discussed removing President Trump from office and think a special prosecutor is needed to investigate.

    Fifty-six percent (56%) of Likely U.S. Voters believe senior federal law enforcement officials are likely to have broken the law in their discussions in May 2017 to oust Trump, with 37% who say it is Very Likely. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 36% consider that unlikely, with 19% who say it’s Not At All Likely that they broke the law.

  • Most Say Trump’s Call for Unity Will Go Nowhere

    Despite President Trump’s call for unity in this week’s State of the Union address, most voters don’t expect Democrats in Congress to respond and blame partisan politics for the gridlock.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 33% of Likely U.S. Voters think the president and Democrats in Congress will be able to work together on at least some basic issues, and that includes just eight percent (8%) who say it’s Very Likely. Sixty-four percent (64%) consider compromise between the two sides to be unlikely, with 19% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Voters Rate Illegal Immigration As Congress' Top Concern

    Following a record-long government shutdown over an inability to reach an agreement on border wall spending, even more voters want to see Congress lean in to dealing with illegal immigration. However, they’re less confident these days that President Trump and the new Democratic majority in the House can work together to achieve that goal.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 35% of all Likely U.S. Voters believe illegal immigration is the issue the new Congress should deal with first. In a distant second, half as many (17%) want Congress to emphasize health care, while another 16% think the focus should be on Trump’s impeachment. This is a shift from just after November’s midterm elections, when 29% wanted Congress to address illegal immigration first, while nearly as many (24%) thought it should focus on health care.

    Support for moving first on spending and the deficit inched up slightly from nine percent (9%) in November to 11% today. In single digits is support for focusing primarily on economic fairness (8%) and gun control (3%) and infrastructure (5%). Two percent (2%) opt for something else.

  • Voters, Especially Republicans, Tuning in to Trump’s State of the Union

    Despite the post-government shutdown delay, President Trump can still expect a big audience for his State of the Union speech tomorrow night.

Twenty-seven percent (27%) are unlikely to follow the speech, with 14% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
