In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
– President Trump ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 46%.
– 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.
– The vast majority of Americans feel thankful this time of year.
– The new trade deal the Trump administration has negotiated with Canada and Mexico is languishing in the House of Representatives. While voters still regard it as an improvement over the much-maligned NAFTA, they’re a lot less confident that Congress will approve it.
– Voters strongly defend Americans’ right to a gun but still tend to feel a ban on assault rifles isn’t a bad idea.
– Democrats are far less convinced than Republicans and unaffiliated voters that a free-market system is superior to a socialist one and are much more willing to vote for a socialist candidate. Those under 40 are a lot more responsive to the siren call of socialism than older voters are.
– Thirty-eight percent (38%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
