  • Most See Impeachment As Failed Strategy, Want Democrats to Move On

    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 latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 32% of Likely U.S. Voters think House Democrats should continue their efforts to remove Trump from office. Sixty-two percent (62%) say Democrats in Congress should now focus on other issues. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Trump’s Monthly Approval Stalls in January

    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.

    The president earned a monthly job approval of 48% in January, down one point from December. In January of last year, Trump’s monthly job approval had fallen to 44%, its lowest level in a year. But it jumped five points to 49% in February following his well-received State of the Union speech, recapturing the high ground he held for most of 2018. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapproved of the president’s job performance last month, up one point from the month before.

  • Few Minds Have Been Changed by Senate Impeachment Trial

  • Most Say Impeachment No Problem for Trump in Upcoming Election

  • 55% Favor Calling New Witnesses for Senate Impeachment Trial

    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.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 35% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the Senate trial should be based only on the impeachment cases voted on by House Democrats in December.

  • 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.)

  • GOP Wants Trump to Fill Any Supreme Court Vacancy; Democrats Say Wait

    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.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Trump should nominate someone to fill any Supreme Court position that opens up this year. Forty-nine percent (49%) disagree and say the position should be left open for the winner for the 2020 presidential election to fill. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • Even Fewer Expect Trump’s Removal From Office

    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.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the president will be reelected, marking little statistical change from the 44% who felt that way in March of last year and the 45% who predicted reelection this past November. Thirty-three percent (33%) think it’s more likely the Democratic nominee will defeat Trump, a finding that has ranged from 26% to 33% in previous surveys.

    But only 12% now feel it’s more likely that Trump will be impeached and removed from office before serving his first full term. That’s down from a high of 29% when Rasmussen Reports first asked this question in late December 2017 and marks a new low. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
