After weeks of working behind closed doors, Senate Republicans on Thursday unveiled a draft of their bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. After the House bill passed in May, most voters said they like the health care they receive but also felt fixes to Obamacare were necessary. Just 31% felt Congress should repeal the entire law and start over again. 

There’s even stronger support for House Republicans’ proposal to allow Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines, but voters remain divided on proposed reforms for medical liability and malpractice

Following the most expensive congressional race in history, voters agree money makes it impossible for most people to run for Congress, but they also still believe that money is not the most important factor in an election.

Some readers wonder how we come up with our job approval ratings for the president since they often don’t show as dramatic a change as some other pollsters do. It depends on how you ask the question and whom you ask.

To get a sense of longer-term job approval trends for the president, Rasmussen Reports compiles our tracking data on a full month-by-month basis.

Rasmussen Reports has been a pioneer in the use of automated telephone polling techniques, but many other firms still utilize their own operator-assisted technology (see methodology).

Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. To reach those who have abandoned traditional landline telephones, Rasmussen Reports uses an online survey tool to interview randomly selected participants from a demographically diverse panel. The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Results are also compiled on a full-week basis and crosstabs for full-week results are available for Platinum Members.
