Americans Appear To Be Less Enthusiastic About Helping NPR

Most voters tune into National Public Radio during the course of a month, but far fewer think taxpayers should continue to subsidize it.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 31% of Likely U.S. Voters think federal subsidies to NPR should be discontinued as President Trump has proposed in his latest budget. Slightly more (39%) disagree, but 30% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
