    Democrats, increasingly worried about the U.S. Supreme Court tilting to the right, have been talking lately about changes in its overall makeup. Most voters like the idea of term-limiting the justices but draw the line at adding more members to the court.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 27% of Likely U.S. Voters favor increasing the number of justices on the Supreme Court. Fifty-one percent (51%) are opposed, but 22% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Thirty-seven percent (37%) 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 March 14.

    This week’s finding remains the same for the second week in a row. Prior to this, that number had been on the decline week-over-week from 43% in early December to 31% by the end of January. It ran in the mid- to upper 20s for much of 2016, President Obama's last full year in office.

    Americans continue to agree with President Trump that free speech, especially the conservative kind, is at risk on college campuses today.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of American Adults believe there is less freedom of speech on U.S. college campuses than there has been in the past. This finding has been trending up from 39% in surveys since June 2016 when Rasmussen Reports first asked this question.

    Just 16% say there is more freedom of speech in colleges these days, but 26% felt that way three years ago. Twenty-five percent (25%) say the level of freedom of speech is about the same. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
