[Politics] Cuomo Ties Biden for Presidential Nomination Among Democrats

Joe Biden may be sweeping the traditional primary system, but Democrats are evenly divided when asked if New York Governor Andrew Cuomo would make a better challenger against President Trump in November.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 46% of Likely Democratic Voters still believe Biden would make a better presidential candidate for their party this fall. But just as many (45%) opt for Cuomo instead, even though he isn’t even in the race. Nine percent (9%) are undecided.

Among all likely voters, it’s Biden 38%, Cuomo 38%, with 24% not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted April 2 and 5, 2020 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

[Politics] Support Grows for Government-Run Health Care, Universal Basic Income

As the coronavirus opens the door for greater government control of our lives, voter support for a taxpayer-funded income for all and government-controlled health care are on the rise. Democrats are far bigger fans than others, though.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 40% of all Likely U.S. Voters now favor having the federal government provide every single American with a basic income. Slightly more (43%) are opposed to a so-called “universal basic income,” while 17% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

[Politics] Trump’s Monthly Approval Down As Coronavirus Struggle Continues

When tracking President Trump’s job approval on a daily basis, people sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations that they miss the bigger picture. To look at the longer-term trends, Rasmussen Reports compiles the numbers on a full-month basis, and the results for Trump’s presidency can be seen in the graphics below.

Leading the nation through the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic, the president earned a monthly job approval of 47% in March, down two points from 49% in February. In 2019, Trump’s monthly approval ran from a low of 44% in January to a high of 50% in April. He ended the year at 49%. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapproved of the president’s job performance in March, up two points from the month before.

The margin of sampling error is less than +/- 1 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
