Most Recent Releases
When tracking President Trump’s job approval on a daily basis, people sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations that they miss the bigger picture. To look at the longer-term trends, Rasmussen Reports compiles the numbers on a full-month basis, and the results for Trump’s presidency can be seen in the graphics below.
President Trump drew criticism from retired military leaders when he recently threatened to use the armed forces to calm domestic unrest, and veterans in general are a lot more critical of the president than they have been in the past.
Voters still don’t trust the political news they get and think it remains biased against President Trump. But they’re also following the news more closely these days.
Voters are evenly divided over whether the U.S. Justice Department should have dropped its crumbling case against former Trump adviser Michael Flynn, even though they tend to think his conviction was valid. But once again there’s a sharp partisan difference of opinion.
Impeachment is over and done with as far as most voters are concerned. The House Democrats’ failed effort to remove President Trump has just made him stronger politically, voters say.
The Senate impeachment trial of President Trump may have dominated the headlines, but it has had little impact on perhaps the most important jury, America’s voters.
Most voters oppose the U.S. Senate’s removal of President Trump from office and say that decision should be left up to them in November.
Most voters think President Trump’s impeachment won’t hurt him at the polls in November and don’t share House Democrats’ concern that the upcoming election may be unfair if Trump is one of the candidates.
Most voters think the U.S. Senate should allow new witnesses to supplement the House’s party-line impeachment case before deciding whether to remove President Trump from office.
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.
Voters are largely divided along party lines when asked if President Trump should fill any U.S. Supreme Court vacancy this year and whether former President Obama should be considered for the job.
Fewer voters than ever believe President Trump will be removed from office via impeachment, while a little-changing plurality still thinks he will be reelected in November.
There’s more voter support for impeaching President Trump than there is for impeaching former President Clinton after all these years.
Impeachment isn’t shaping up as the most critical issue in next year’s elections, and voters still tend to think President Trump’s removal from office would hurt the economy. Democrats, of course, disagree.
A lot of voters say they’re following the House impeachment hearings, but Democrats don’t seem as interested as they were when the hearings first started.
President Trump’s Cabinet seems to have a revolving door at times, but then most voters agree this president doesn’t depend on his Cabinet like the majority of his predecessors.
The House impeachment hearings haven’t moved voters so far, with a plurality still expecting President Trump to be reelected next November. The number who thinks the president’s impeachment is likely hasn’t changed, but there’s sizable support for expanding the hearings to include the activities of Joe Biden and his son.
Most voters don’t expect fair play from the media when it comes to news coverage of the Democrats’ impeachment attempt.
Just like the vote in the U.S. House of Representatives to push forward with an impeachment inquiry, voters are sharply divided along party lines over whether Democrats will come up with the goods to remove President Trump from office.
