  • Democrats Want Party To Be More Like Pelosi Than Ocasio-Cortez

    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.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 42% of Likely Democratic Voters believe Democrats in Congress should be more like Pelosi than like Squad leader Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Twenty-nine percent (29%) disagree and think congressional Democrats should be more like Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez. Just as many (28%), however, are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Trump A Racist? 32% of Democrats Say Any White Criticism of Politicians of Color Is Racist

  • 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.)

  • GOP Wants More Deportations of Illegal Immigrants; Democrats Don’t

    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.

  • Republicans Say Perot Cost Bush Reelection, See Trump As 3rd-Party President

    Mega-businessman Ross Perot who died this week ran one of the highest profile third-party presidential bids in history, and many Republicans suspect he elected Bill Clinton in the process. But a sizable number of all voters think Donald Trump, elected as a Republican, is the third-party president that Perot wanted to be.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that a plurality (45%) of Likely U.S. Voters still thinks Trump governs more like a third-party president than a traditional Republican. That’s unchanged from two years ago, but nearly as many (43%) disagreed at that time. Now only 35% feel that way. Twenty percent (20%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
