What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending March 30, 2019

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

- President Trump ended the week with a daily job approval of 49%. 

- Former Vice President Joe Biden tops President Trump in Rasmussen Reports’ first biweekly White House Watch presidential race tracking poll.

- President Trump’s exoneration by the Mueller report has highlighted the highly inaccurate reporting of many major media outlets, but partisan affiliation overrides the facts when it comes to how voters grade the media’s performance. 

- Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has finished his investigation of the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia, most voters say enough is enough. But many Democrats want to keep on going.

- Voters generally approve of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report exonerating President Trump, although Republicans are more critical than ever of his probe and Democrats aren’t as happy about Mueller as they used to be.

- Democrats are far more willing than other voters to support a socialist presidential candidate and tend to dismiss criticism of socialism as unfair.

- While more than 10 prominent Democrats are already in the race for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination, Democratic voters remain closely divided over whether a lot of candidates is a good thing.

- Most voters say there should be a ceiling on how old a presidential candidate can be. Among these voters, most say it should be 70 or younger, a requirement that would rule out President Trump and several of the top Democratic contenders for 2020.

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