What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls

Saturday, July 20, 2019

In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:

- President Trump ended the holiday polling week with a daily job approval of 50%. 

- Hispanic longshot Julian Castro impressed many observers in the recent Democratic presidential debates, but right now he's no threat to President Trump.

- Voters tend to disagree with one of the so-called Democratic congressional Squad members that new immigrants love America more than those who were born here.

- Before President Trump criticized the so-called “Squad” of young Democratic congresswomen, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was already trying to wrest the media’s attention away from them. Her fellow Democrats tend to agree with Pelosi, but it’s far from a slam dunk.

- Voters are closely divided over whether President Trump is a racist, but one-in-three Democrats think it’s racism any time a white politician criticizes a politician of color.

- Homeowners continue to feel better about the housing market than they have in years.

- 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.

- Federal immigration authorities began a major deportation operation this past weekend, and for Republicans it’s long overdue. But Democrats disagree and don’t like the way the Trump administration is cracking down on illegal immigration.  

- Forty percent (40%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
