National Survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters

Conducted July 14 and 17, 2016
By Rasmussen Reports


1* House Speaker Paul Ryan has tried to get the federal government to withhold intelligence briefings from Hillary Clinton after the FBI director said she was “extremely careless” with classified information while serving as secretary of State. Which is more likely – that Ryan is playing politics or that he is genuinely trying to protect government secrets?

2* Whom do you trust more to handle the country’s top national security secrets – Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump? Or do you trust them both about the same?
