Rasmussen Reports State and Regional Stories

Politicians' Deceitful Promise By John Stossel

Will you be able to retire? Maybe not.

Will your state pay what its politicians promised? Almost certainly not.

All the Anonymous BS That's Fit to Print: Self-Serving Newspapers Ditch Their Own Ethics Rules By Ted Rall

The most disturbing aspect of The New York Times op-ed by an anonymous "senior official in the Trump Administration" isn't its content.

The content isn't significant enough to make an impression.

Americans Remember 9/11, or Do They?

Today marks the 17th anniversary of the radical Islamic terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 that killed 3,000 Americans and injured another 6,000. Americans are more convinced these days that their sacrifice has not been forgotten, although many still wonder.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 38% of American Adults still believe that many Americans have forgotten the impact of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But that’s down from 41% in surveys over the past four years and a high of 47% who felt that way in 2012. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted on September 5-6, 2018 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology

58% See Politically-Driven Boycotts as Effective

Nike, the New Yorker and west coast burger chain In-N-Out are the latest recipients of calls to boycott from members of various political parties. But while just one-in-three have participated in politically-spurred boycotts, many think they’re effective.

Just 36% of Likely U.S. Voters have themselves participated in a boycott of a product or place for political reasons, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey. Sixty percent (60%) have not. This shows little change from two years ago when talk of boycotting Trump hotels and products was abuzz leading up to the presidential election.

Americans Support Plastic Bag Ban Over Five-Cent Fee

A year ago, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo rejected a five-cent fee on plastic shopping bags at retail stores. Now, he’s planning to introduce a bill to ban plastic bags outright in the state, joining California and Hawaii. Americans are more inclined to agree with the plan to ban bags all together than to pay out of pocket to use them.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 44% of American Adults favor a ban on disposable plastic shopping bags in the state where they live. Nearly as many (40%) oppose a plastic bag ban, but 16% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
