  • 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.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 18% of all Likely U.S. Voters think Congress is likely to impeach Kavanaugh, and that includes just seven percent (7%) who say it’s Very Likely. 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.)

  • Trump’s Monthly Approval Down Again in August

    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 47% in August, down one point from 48% in July. In January of this year, Trump’s monthly job approval had fallen to 44%, its lowest level in a year. But it jumped five points to 49% in February following his well-received State of the Union speech, recapturing the high ground he held for most of 2018. Fifty-two percent (52%) disapproved of the president’s job performance last month, a two-point drop from July.

    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.

  • Good Economy, Yes, But No Thanks to Trump?

    Voters give positive marks to the U.S. economy these days, but thanks to the usual partisan division on most all things Trump, they tend to think the president has little or nothing to do with it.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 58% of Likely U.S. Voters rate the economy as good or excellent. Just 12% view it as poor. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Democrats Remain Only Ones Still Pushing Impeachment

    Democratic voters are strongly convinced that President Trump is guilty of impeachable crimes, but most voters in general say congressional Democrats need to focus their attention elsewhere.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 57% of all Likely U.S. Voters believe Democrats in Congress should move on to other issues now that the Mueller probe has failed to prove that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government. Thirty-five percent (35%) say congressional Democrats should do their own investigation anyway. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Voters See Twitter As Future Presidential Tool But Don’t Like Trump Using It

    Most voters say President Trump’s use of Twitter is the wave of the future for subsequent presidents, but nearly as many, including a large number of his political opponents, think Trump’s use of social media to jump over the Washington press corps is bad for the country.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 42% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is “unpresidential” for a president to use Twitter to comment on things including the news of the day. But over half (52%) now say the use of Twitter and other real-time technologies is likely to be a common tool for future presidents. That compares to 45% and 46% respectively in January 2017 when Rasmussen Reports first asked this question. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Most Voters Think Trump, Unlike Congress, Listens to Them

    Voters definitely have mixed feelings about President Trump’s political savvy, but most think he listens to voter concerns a lot more than Congress does.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 41% of Likely U.S. Voters rate the president’s political skills as good or excellent. Slightly more (45%) give him poor marks in this area. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Voters Question Trump’s Allegiance to Constitution

    President Trump, like President Obama before him, has relied heavily on executive actions to get around a gridlocked Congress, and voters fall along predictable party lines when asked whether Trump’s actions would pass constitutional muster.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Trump has been less faithful to the U.S. Constitution than most other presidents. Thirty-one percent (31%) say he’s been more faithful to the foundational document. Sixteen percent (16%) rate Trump’s allegiance to the Constitution as about the same as other presidents. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Trump Earns Higher Marks, Outscores Obama for Economy, National Security

    Voters rank Donald Trump well ahead of Barack Obama in his handling of the economy at this point in their presidencies. Trump’s national security approval is at the high level his predecessor enjoyed just after the killing of 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters now think Trump is doing a good or excellent job handling economic issues. That’s up from 39% in mid-2017 shortly after Trump had taken office and just short of the high of 51% last October. Thirty-three percent (33%) rate his performance as poor. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Voters Are Cooler to America First Than Trump Is

    Voters here are more confident these days in the global power of the U.S. president, but they say President Trump pushes America’s interests more than they think is necessary.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters now believe the president of the United States is the most powerful person in the world. Thirty-nine percent (39%) disagree, while 14% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
