  • Once Again, Party Line Defines Views of Trump China Trade Deal

    President Trump has just signed the first phase of an historic trade agreement with China, although both countries are still keeping their recently imposed tariffs in place for now. Voters tend to think the deal will be good for America and are more upbeat on how it will impact them personally. But as usual, party line makes a difference.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 40% of Likely U.S. Voters believe America’s trade relationship with China will be better a year from now than it is today. Twenty-eight percent (28%) expect that relationship to be worse in a year’s time. This compares to 42% and 34% of voters respectively in October 2018 just after the Trump administration imposed the tariffs on China. Twenty-two percent (22%) expect the U.S.-China trade relationship to remain about the same. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
