What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending November 9, 2019
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Trump ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 49%.
- Voters strongly believe drug cartels are now the most powerful force in Mexico and that the U.S. military should be used to stop the drug-related violence they expect to cross our southern border.
- Transgender athletes who are biological males are winning at all levels of girls’ and women’s sports these days, and Americans don’t approve.
- The Mueller report cleared the Trump campaign of campaign collusion with the Russians in 2016, but voters, including Republicans, are more skeptical nevertheless about Donald Trump’s win over Hillary Clinton.
- New York City yesterday voted to become the largest city with ranked-choice voting in which voters choose not just their first choice but several candidates in order of preference. The second-choice votes help pick a winner if no candidate earns more than 50% of the vote. But voters nationwide aren’t thrilled by the idea.
- The president earned a monthly job approval of 46% in October, down two points from 48% in September.
- Most voters continue to worry about global warming AKA climate change but not enough to part with their hard-earned money to do something about it.
- Just like the vote in the U.S. House of Representatives to push forward with an impeachment inquiry, voters are sharply divided along party lines over whether Democrats will come up with the goods to remove President Trump from office.
- Thirty-six percent (36%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
