    A Rasmussen poll shows that a plurality of 49 percent of those polled want a special prosecutor to investigate the embattled FBI, while only 31 percent do not. Another 19 percent are on the fence. According to this poll, the public vehemently disagrees with James Comey, the disgraced former FBI Director who has used his Twitter account to call for an "independent" FBI, which presumably means an FBI that is never criticized or investigated by the American people's chosen representatives in Congress-a frightening thought by way of a banana republic attitude.Thankfully, despite the best efforts of Deep Staters like Comey...

    Denmark and other countries are determined to see through the 2015 Paris climate agreement, Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen said as environment ministers from 190 countries met in the German city of Bonn on Tuesday at the UN’s COP23 climate summit. Much of the discussion at the summit will revolve around US President Donald Trump’s announcement earlier this year that his country — which the world’s second-largest carbon dioxide emissions — would pull out of the December 2015 agreement. But other countries are determined to see the agreement through, regardless of the message sent by the United States, according...

    Denmark’s government will give 315 million kroner (€42 million) to support women in conflict and war zones, with US president Donald Trump having withdrawn American support in the area. Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen confirmed to broadcaster DR that the government would pledge more money to women at risk of rape, human trafficking and being married against their will. Funds are particularly needed in those areas in the current political climate, Rasmussen said. “We have a president sitting in the White House who has withdrawn from all international collaboration related to family planning,” the PM told DR. Earlier this year,...

    The President's approval rating has rebounded somewhat since our July poll. Following a series of disastrous weeks, Trump's approval numbers have moved up slightly, especially among his base and a few other sub-groups not known for their support of the president. On the heels of replacing key White House personnel, Trumps looks for a reset after 200 rather chaotic days in office. Recently, President Trump has talked tough to North Korea and has supported sanctions against the nuclear dictatorship, while also trying to reign in leaks coming out the White House. Trump's biggest support and other improvements came from his...

    President Trump’s favorite poll isn’t giving him a boost anymore. The President’s approval rating in Rasmussen Reports, a right-leaning and oft-criticized polling firm beloved by Trump, dipped below 40% for the first time ever Monday. That new low reflects Trump’s plunge in nearly every mainstream opinion poll, which have shown him scoring record-low approval ratings through his first months in office. It also comes just a month after Trump hand-picked a Rasmussen poll as proof that he was performing better than his predecessor, former President Barack Obama. Monday’s Rasmussen survey showed Trump getting overall approval from only 39% of likely...
