In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Trump ended the week with a daily job approval of 49%.
- Voters see most of the Democratic presidential candidates as more liberal than they are and rate their agenda as outside the mainstream.
- Voters are more worried about a nuclear attack from Iran, but most think President Trump’s stepped-up sanctions against the Iranians will force them to back off their nuclear program.
- A number of top senators have been briefed by the Pentagon recently on UFO sightings by Navy pilots, but few Americans feel threatened by unidentified flying objects. They do, however, believe there is intelligent life out in space.
- Voters rank Donald Trump well ahead of Barack Obama in his handling of the economy at this point in their presidencies. Trump’s national security approval is at the high level his predecessor enjoyed just after the killing of 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden.
- Most voters said they were likely to tune in to the Democratic presidential debates earlier this week, but they think all 24 major hopefuls should have been included, not the pared-down 20 scheduled.
- Public surveillance cameras are a growing reality, and most Americans think they make their lives safer. But a sizable number still fears that those cameras are too intrusive.
- Voters still give President Trump the edge in next year’s election, although they’re not convinced that he’s done enough yet to make American great again.
- Forty-two percent (42%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
