What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending September 28, 2019
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Trump ended the holiday polling week with a daily job approval of 48%.
- Voters think President Trump has more to lose in the growing Ukraine controversy than leading Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden, but they still see Trump’s reelection as a surer shot than impeachment.
- Fake news or the real thing? Only one-in-three voters think the New York Times gets it completely right most of the time.
- With a robust economy and a booming jobs market, voters are feeling more protective of the environment than they have in the past.
- Most voters expect Joe Biden to be the Democratic nominee, but President Trump has the edge for now in next year’s presidential race.
- Just over half of Americans think diversity is a good thing and say they live in neighborhoods that reflect that.
- Most voters agree there’s a housing shortage in America but stop short of embracing Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders’ $2.5 trillion plan to guarantee housing for all.
- Forty-three percent (43%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
