The FINANCIAL -- Twenty-four percent (24%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey for the week ending July 21.
That’s up three points from last week following the murder of policemen in Detroit and Baton Rouge. It was the lowest weekly finding since October 2013 during the federal government shutdown. Thirty percent (30%) or more said the country is heading the right way for five out of the first seven weeks this year after tracking in the mid-20s nearly every week during the second half of last year. But the weekly finding has been back in the 20s for several months, according to Rasmussen Reports.
The national telephone survey of 2,500 Likely Voters was conducted by Rasmussen Reports from July 17-21, 2016. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 2 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
