  • Voters Still Report Little Personal Impact From Shutdown

    Voters don’t care too much for the federal government, and the number who say they have been badly hurt by the continuing government shutdown remains small.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 10% of Likely U.S. Voters say they have been personally affected by the shutdown in a major way. Another 35% say that in terms of their own personal life, they have felt a minor impact, while 54% say the shutdown has had no impact at all on them. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Trump’s Monthly Job Approval Holds Steady in December

    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 48% in December, unchanged from the month before. That’s down just one point from his high for the year of 49% reached in both April and October. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapproved of his job performance last month, up a point from November.
