What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending April 6, 2019

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

- President Trump ended the week with a daily job approval of 51%. 

- Voters continue to view illegal immigration as a serious problem but don’t think Democrats want to stop it. Cutting foreign aid is one tool voters are willing to consider.

- Voters continue to believe that cost is the number one problem by far with health care in America today, and most still say the solution is to get government out of the way.

- The president earned a monthly job approval of 48% in March, down one point from February.

- Voters remain much more critical of the U.S. health care system than they are of the care they receive from it. While much of the world turns to America for advanced medicine, voters here aren’t so sure we have anything special to offer.

- Americans see violence against women as less of a problem here compared to most other nations and don’t agree with former Vice President Joe Biden’s recent statement that “a white man’s culture” encourages such violence.

- It pays to have powerful friends. That’s the way Americans see the case of TV actor Jussie Smollett.

- Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has ruled out collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians in 2016, voters, like senior Republicans, are turning a suspicious eye toward Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Most also still suspect high-level wrongdoing at the U.S. Department of Justice.

- Thirty-eight percent (38%) of voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
