Rasmussen survey show growing number of Americans want President to lead the way
A new survey released by Rasmussen has revealed that a growing number of Americans what Congress to allow President Donald Trump to do what he wants.
The poll is noted as one of the most accurate pollsters in predicting the outcome of the 2016 election.
The survey took the views of likely U.S. voters about the year ahead, with 41 percent saying that t Congress should do more of what Donald Trump wants.
According to Rasmussen, the figure is a 12 percent increase compared to the same time last year.
But the number of Americans who want Trump to do more of what Congress wants has fallen by 8 percent from last year to 48 percent.
Just twelve percent of the respondents remained undecided.
Trump’s re-election campaign manager, Brad Parscale, stated that the Presidents' job approval rating had soared to its highest point since campaign tracking began.
“Just received my newest voter score tracking from my team. [Trump] has reached his highest national approval rating since I started tracking. [The Democrats] have made a mistake going with their gut over data,” Parscale wrote on Twitter.
Trump and congressional Democrats are in a standoff about funding for a border security package.
The impasse has resulted in a partial government shutdown, which has lasted for almost three weeks.
Many Americans believe there is a crisis on the Southwest border, according to a survey published by Morning Consult on Jan. 8.
The vast majority, regardless of party affiliation, said there is either a crisis or a problem on the border.
But American remain split.
Forty-four percent support is building a wall on the Southwestern border.
Forty-seven percent oppose the idea.
Republican continue to highlight the impasse is over a border security package.
One of the biggest misdirection tactics you're seeing from the left: they're pretending President Trump is ONLY asking for a wall. This is not true. The WH has requested more personnel, technology, etc.--all things we need too. Wall funding is a necessary PART of the solution.— Mark Meadows (@RepMarkMeadows) January 9, 2019

“One of the biggest misdirection tactics you see from the left: they’re pretending President Trump is ONLY asking for a wall. This is not true. The [White House] has requested more personnel, technology, etc., all things we need too. Wall funding is a necessary PART of the solution,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) wrote on Twitter.
The recent bill proposed by the Democrats to end the partial shutdown of the US Government offered $12 billion more in foreign aid than the Trump Administration requested, and nothing extra to fund the wall along the Southern Border or provide additional border security.
The statement from the White House Office of Management and Budget warned the new Democratic House majority of President Trump’s intention to veto the bills that don't provide additional border security funding.
President Donald Trump delivered a historic national address from the Oval Office of the White House last Tuesday in which he highlighted the devasting impact illegal immigration had on the United States and declared a "humanitarian crisis" and the country's border.
The president described the ongoing turmoil at the US Southern Border as "a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul" in his first live address to the nation from the Oval Office.
