What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending June 1, 2019

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

- President Trump ended the week with a daily job approval of 48%. 

- Vice President Joe Biden continues to lead the other prominent hopefuls for next year’s Democratic presidential nomination, while Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders remains a distant second.

- As another school year comes to a close, voters continue to question the abilities of the students U.S. schools graduate.

- Voters still regard most judges as political animals but think it is wrong for politicians to single certain judges out for criticism.

- Americans strongly support President Trump’s plan to require TV ads to list drug prices, and most think it’s likely to force down costs.

- Most Americans still understand the reason the Founding Fathers established the Electoral College and are increasingly opposed to efforts to get rid of it.

- While Democratic presidential hopefuls attempt to outbid each other by offering more government freebies, most voters still call for smaller, cheaper government and don’t trust the feds with their money.

- Americans continue to view Memorial Day as one of the nation’s most significant holidays – and the beginning of summer.

- Thirty-eight percent (38%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
