TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

    The latest figures include 38% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 40% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -2. (see trends).

  • 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’s Monthly Approval Edges Higher in June

    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 June, up one point from 48% in May. 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. In April, the approval finding rose to 50%, the president’s highest monthly rating since February 2017, his first full month in office. Fifty percent (50%) disapproved of Trump’s job performance last month, down a point from May.

    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.

  • 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.)

  • Voters Agree Trump Tougher on Trade, But Most Dems Disapprove

    With President Trump in a showdown with China and threatening Mexico with tariffs if it doesn’t step up the fight against illegal immigration, voters agree the president is a lot more pro-American on trade than his predecessors, but they remain closely divided over whether that’s a good thing.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 68% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Trump is more aggressive than most recent presidents in pushing what’s good for America when it comes to trade. Just 11% think he is less aggressive, while seven percent (7%) rate his trade policies as about the same as those who have been in the White House before him in recent years. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Voters See More Congressional Gridlock Ahead

    Voters continue to say that illegal immigration is the most pressing issue for Congress, but they also still have very little confidence that President Trump and congressional Democrats can get anything done.

    Just 24% of Likely U.S. Voters are even somewhat confident that Trump and the Democratic majority in the House can work together to do what’s best for the American people. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 72% lack that confidence. This includes eight percent (8%) who are Very Confident the two sides can work together and 40% who are Not At All Confident. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Voters Oppose ‘Unlikely’ Impeachments of Trump, Barr, Kavanaugh

    Congressional Democrats seem to be in an impeaching mood these days, but voters think their threats against President Trump, Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh are going nowhere.

    Seventy-one percent (71%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the U.S. House of Representatives is unlikely to impeach Barr, Kavanaugh or the president in the next few months. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 22% consider the impeachment of any of these men as likely. This includes just seven percent (7%) who say impeachment is Very Likely and 34% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • 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.)

  • 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.)
