The mission of ScottRasmussen.com is to enhance the public dialogue through data-driven analysis that explores the underlying currents of public opinion.
Forty-nine percent (49%) of Registered Voters nationwide approve of the way that President Trump is handling his job while 51% disapprove. These results, based upon a full week of polling from December 9-14, shows the president’s approval is now up a point from a week ago.
Those totals include 25% Strongly Approve and 38% who Strongly Disapprove (see crosstab results).
ScottRasmussen.com has just begun offering daily updates of the president’s job approval. New results are updated each weekday at 5:00 p.m. Eastern.
Thirty-five percent (35%) of voters believe that things would be better in the country if Hillary Clinton had won the 2016 election. Forty percent (40%) believe they would be worse. Twenty-five percent (25%) don’t think there would be much difference or aren’t sure.
Earlier this week, we released data showing that 28% of voters believe it is fair to call the United States a White Supremacist nation. A majority of black voters (60%) believe that’s a fair description. Additionally, among all voters, 57% believe President Trump wants a nation based upon White Supremacy.
On another topic, 44% of voters believe President Trump should be impeached and removed from office. That’s unchanged since August.
ScottRasmussen’s Number of the Day airs on more than 75 television stations around the country and we’ve created a YouTube page to share one of these each day. We’ll also add other broadcast features and eventually some content of our own. One clip this week provided a humorous moment when the anchor struggled to pronounce the name Rasmussen.
Other data shows that while Americans believe the new technology developments are generally good for America, there are concerns. Half (49%) of all voters worry that new technologies will be deployed before they can be fully vetted. Twenty-three percent (23%) of respondents say they’re more worried that new technologies will be delayed by too many regulations.
