What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending November 16, 2019
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Trump ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 50%.
- As overall confidence in the economy continues to hover near record highs, Americans are now feeling it in their wallets as well with sentiments on their own personal finances and anticipated spending shattering previous highs.
- Most voters don’t expect fair play from the media when it comes to news coverage of the Democrats’ impeachment attempt.
- Americans see a better job market these days and tend to think it will stay that way. For Democrats more than others, though, more government hiring is the way to go.
- Support has fallen for expanding Medicare to all Americans as opponents detail the staggering likely cost to taxpayers. Few voters are willing to spend much, if anything, to make it a reality.
- Democrats really don’t like America and think it’s time to move on from the culture that got us here.
- Most Americans give high marks to Veterans Day, the holiday that honors military service, and think time spent in the military is good for young people.
- Thirty-nine percent (39%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
