What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending June 15, 2019
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Trump ended the week with a daily job approval of 51%.
- Father’s Day is this Sunday, but most Americans still think two parents are better than one.
- Several states, most notably Maine and Massachusetts, are flirting with decriminalizing prostitution, but most voters aren’t ready to go there yet.
- GOP voters strongly choose President Trump over the top Republican in Congress, while Democrats identify with prospective presidential nominee Joe Biden more than with the young firebrand who increasingly seems to be setting the party’s agenda.
- Voters here are more confident these days in the global power of the U.S. president, but they say President Trump pushes America’s interests more than they think is necessary.
- Forty percent (40%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
