A new Rasmussen Reports survey revealed Friday that a majority of likely voters agree with a statement from President Donald Trump declaring, “The only path to unity is to rebuild shared national identity focused on common American values and virtues of which we have plenty. This includes restoring patriotic education in our nation’s schools, where they are trying to change everything that we have learned.”
However, at the same time the president is talking about unity, establishment media and Democrats are allegedly teamed up to blame Trump for “country-wide riots that began following the death of George Floyd in May,” according to the Daily Caller.
Rioting and civil disturbances have plagued several U.S. cities for months. Portland, Oregon, for example, has experienced more than 90 straight days of protests that included one homicide caught on video. The suspect in that murder was killed by law enforcement officers while trying to serve a warrant for his arrest about 125 miles north in the community of Lacey, Wash.
According to Rasmussen, 57 percent of likely voters concur with the president’s remarks. Only 30 percent disagree and 14 percent were undecided. That 30 percent might be Democrats, because the survey revealed that 78 percent of Republicans see a need to restore patriotic education, but only 43 percent of identified Democrats share that view, Rasmussen said.
“Forty percent (40%) of all voters now rate the performance of America’s public schools as good or excellent,” Rasmussen reported, “up from 29% in May of last year and the highest finding in several years of regular surveying. Twenty-two percent (22%) still say the public schools are doing a poor job.”
Certain to cause Democrats and the mainstream media some concern is the Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll that shows 52 percent of likely voters approve of Trump’s job performance, while 48 percent disapprove. With less than 60 days remaining before the Nov. 3 election, it appears the president’s polling numbers are creeping gradually upwards. However, that depends upon the survey.
The polling number shows 42 percent of likely voters strongly approve of the job Trump is doing and 42 percent strongly disapprove, essentially making that specific vote a wash.
