Confidence In New Trade Deal with Canada, Mexico is Up

Most voters think the new trade deal with Canada and Mexico will pass Congress, and they’re slightly more confident these days that it will be better for the United States than the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 38% of Likely U.S. Voters say the new trade agreement will be better for the United States than NAFTA, while 22% think it will be worse. Twenty-six percent (26%) feel the economic impact will be about the same, and another 15% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
