What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending March 23, 2019

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

- President Trump ended the week with a daily job approval of 45%. 

- Americans have stepped up the pace of filing their income taxes and aren’t particularly worried about an IRS audit. 

- More Americans than ever think they are overtaxed despite last year’s tax cuts and tax reform.

 - Most voters tune into National Public Radio during the course of a month, but far fewer think taxpayers should continue to subsidize it.

- Democrats, increasingly worried about the U.S. Supreme Court tilting to the right, have been talking lately about changes in its overall makeup. Most voters like the idea of term-limiting the justices but draw the line at adding more members to the court.

- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters last week that she’s always favored lowering the voting age to 16, but there’s very little voter support for that idea. 

- Former Republican Vice President Dick Cheney, one of the architects of the war in Iraq, recently criticized President Trump’s foreign policy as being “more like Barack Obama than like Ronald Reagan,” but voters aren’t buying it. 

- Americans continue to agree with President Trump that free speech, especially the conservative kind, is at risk on college campuses today. 

- Thirty-seven percent (37%) of voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
