Only 40% Think State of the Union Is Strong

The economy is booming at historic levels, and America’s coming home from war. But voters say that’s not enough to make a strong country and see a need for more economic and social justice.

Just 40% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with President Trump that “the State of our Union is strong.” The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey finds that 50% disagree with the Republican president’s statement from last week’s State of the Union Address. Ten percent (10%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
