What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending June 22, 2019
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Trump ended the week with a daily job approval of 49%.
- Cory Booker is close to a Spartacus moment in the latest White House Watch survey, pitting the New Jersey senator against President Trump in a hypothetical 2020 election matchup.
- Just over half of Americans took a summer vacation last year and plan to do so again this summer.
- Voters continue to criticize the quality of health care in America and rate cost reduction as a key reform. Health care is also shaping up as a critical voting issue again next year.
- Most voters suspect Iran of the recent torpedo attacks in the Gulf of Oman and say there’s a good chance of war for the United States in the days ahead.
- Voters continue to respect the Social Security system, but most of those under 40 still don’t expect it to fully pay off when they retire.
- California is set to become the first state to give full health care benefits to young, low-income immigrants living in the United States illegally, but a majority of U.S. voters don't support a similar initiative in their own state.
- With unemployment for black Americans at an historic low, voters continue to believe President Trump has been better for young blacks than President Obama. But voters also still feel the government could do more and don’t think Trump’s rotten relationship with black members of Congress helps.
- Forty-one percent (41%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
