    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give 315 million kroner (€42 million) to support women in conflict and war zones, with US president Donald Trump having withdrawn American support in the area.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 “We have a president sitting in the White House who has withdrawn from all international collaboration related to family planning,” the PM told DR.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,...

    Hillary Clinton is back today with a new book, "What Happened," to further explain why Donald Trump is president instead of her.

Sixty-one percent (61%) say it's time for her to retire, up from 55% just after she lost the presidential election to Trump last November. Half (49%) of voters believe Clinton's continued presence...

    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...

    If polls and legacy media outlets are to be believed, President Donald Trump’s approval rating has cratered—as compared with previous presidents in their first respective weeks in office. But there’s one poll—one frequently cited by Trump and his administration’s officials, including press secretary Sean Spicer—that stands out: Rasmussen Reports. In the past week, daily Rasmussen polls showed Trump’s approval rating above 50 percent—even hitting a 55 percent approval rating, with a 45 percent disapproval rating. One might argue that the conservative-leaning Rasmussen is an outlier among a sea of polls that paint Trump in a negative light.
