National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted June 28-29, 2014
By Rasmussen Reports

1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about President Obama and Congress?

2* When it comes to dealing with issues that he considers important to the nation, should President Obama take action alone if Congress does not approve the initiatives he has proposed or should the government do only what the president and Congress agree on?

3* When it comes to the executive actions he has taken in the White House, has President Obama been more faithful or less faithful to the U.S. Constitution than most other presidents? Or has he followed the Constitution about the same as other presidents have?

4* Should Senate approval be necessary for all those nominated by the president to senior government positions?

5* Is it more important for government to operate efficiently or more important to preserve our constitutional system of checks and balances?
