Two important polls are out this week from Rasmussen.
One, released today, notes that voters still think the highly publicized cases of Trump associates Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen will not cause criminal problems for President Donald Trump.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters think the conviction of Manafort and the guilty pleas of Cohen are likely to lead to criminal charges against Trump. Fifty percent (50%) consider that unlikely. This includes 20% who say it’s Very Likely and 24% who see it as Not At All Likely. The question wording is below:
National Survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters
Conducted August 22-23, 2018
By Rasmussen Reports
1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about the criminal cases of Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen – very closely, somewhat closely, not very closely or not at all?
2* How likely is it that that the conviction of Paul Manafort and the guilty pleas of Michael Cohen will lead to criminal charges against President Trump – very likely, somewhat likely, not very likely or not at all likely?
NOTE: Margin of Sampling Error, +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence
Another poll, also release today, reports most voters agree with President Trump that America should come first on the world stage but don't think the Democrat Party's next presidential nominee is likely to follow that path.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that, when thinking about problems in the world, 52% of Likely U.S. Voters are more interesting in finding a solution that most benefits the United States. Forty-one percent (41%) would rather find a solution that is better for the whole world.
