    Voters view so-called political correctness as a problem and see it as a wedge used to silence opposition. President Obama was politically correct, they say; President Trump is not.

  • Nearly Half of Adults Have Gone a Week Without Cash>
    (Recent News - September 18 2018 - 5:00 PM:)
    <>

    Some southern California businesses have announced plans to go cashless, but the use of cash probably isn’t going away anytime soon, even though nearly half of adults still say they’ve gone a week without it - and that number’s even higher among younger adults.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 48% of American Adults have gone a full week without paying for anything with cash and coins. That’s virtually unchanged from last November but down slightly from 50% in early 2016 and 53% the year prior. It is slightly up, though, from 43% in 2012 when we first asked the question.

    Almost as many adults (43%) say they haven’t ever gone a full week without paying cash, also generally unchanged from the previous survey. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • First Responders Shouldn’t Be Responsible for Those Who Ignore Evacuation Orders>
    (Recent News - September 18 2018 - 12:30 PM:)

    As Hurricane Florence pounded the Carolina coast this weekend, many in the storm’s path chose to stay put and ride it out rather than follow the government’s mandatory evacuation orders. But Americans don’t think emergency responders are obligated to help those who ignore those orders.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 44% of American Adults say first responders do not have an obligation to rescue residents who refuse to follow a mandatory evacuation order if they are stranded or in need of help after a storm event. Thirty-eight percent (38%) think first responders are still obligated to help those who willingly ignored mandatory evacuation orders, but 18% are undecided.
