Voters Divided Over Delay of Cabinet Confirmations

Wednesday, January 25, 2017

On day five of his presidency, President Trump only has four confirmed Cabinet members, thanks in part to Democratic efforts to delay Cabinet confirmation hearings. Voters are closely divided over the impact of these delays.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 33% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is good for the country that Democrats in Congress are delaying the approval of some of Trump’s Cabinet nominees. But 39% say the delays are bad for the country. Twenty-three percent (23%) say they will have no impact. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on January 23-24, 2017 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.
