By Rasmussen Reports

1* Which branch of the federal government best represents the views of voters - Congress, the Supreme Court or the president?

2* President Obama and Republicans in Congress oppose each other on most major issues facing the nation. How confident are you that they will be able to work together to do what’s best for the American people – very confident, somewhat confident, not very confident or not at all confident?


3* How would you rate the current relationship between Congress and the president – excellent, good, fair or poor?


4* Congress has sent a bipartisan approved bill authorizing construction of the Keystone XL pipeline to President Obama. Should the president veto this bill or allow the pipeline to be built?


5* If the president vetoes legislation passed by Congress, should Congress change its position to do what the president wants, or should it continue to pass legislation that most members of Congress support even if the president is opposed?
