Voters See Positive NAFTA Changes As Likely

Voters remain critical of free trade in general but suspect that the ongoing renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) initiated by President Trump will produce something better for the United States.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters consider it likely that the United States, Canada and Mexico will be able to renegotiate NAFTA and come up with a better deal for this country, with 20% who say that’s Very Likely. Thirty-seven percent (37%) think it’s unlikely a new agreement will be reached that will be more beneficial to America, but that includes only eight percent (8%) who say it’s Not At All Likely.  Eleven percent (11%) are not sure.
