  • Consumer Spending Update: New High of 62% Give Economy Positive Reviews

    Americans are feeling better than ever about the economy. The Rasmussen Reports Economic Index hit 144.3 in December, up one point from last month and just shy of the five-year peak reached early last year.

    Enthusiasm about the economy started to grow immediately following Donald Trump's election as president in November 2016 and spiked to 145.9 in February 2018. By comparison, in President Obama’s final years in office, this index reached a high of 121.5 in January 2015 and was at 108.1 his last month in the White House.

  • The (Sometimes) Bizarre Democratic Nomination Race By Michael Barone

    Some recent news stories verge on the bizarre -- the House Democrats' futile fuss over impeachment, Speaker Nancy Pelosi's acceptance of President Donald Trump's U.S.-Canada-Mexico trade treaty. But they're not as bizarre, or possibly as consequential, as unanticipated developments in the Democrats' presidential nomination contest.

  • No, I Don’t Wish Trump Would Stop Tweeting By Brian C. Joondeph

    When speaking to Republicans casually about news and politics, the conversation eventually winds its way to President Trump. The dialogue is typically civil, unlike when trying to talk to hard left Democrats about politics, which is about as satisfying as having a root canal.

  • Americans Champion Public Religion, Christmas in Schools

    Americans still strongly support Christmas in the schools and on other public property and continue to believe in the power of religious faith to better the world.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 52% of American Adults think America would be a better place if most people attended religious services on a regular basis. Just nine percent (9%) say regular religious attendance would make America worse off, while 32% feel it would have no impact. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
