(POLL) Republicans widen lead on crime issue

With less than six months to go before Election Day, the Republicans have increased their advantage over Democrats in terms of who voters trust more, when it comes to crime issue.

That’s according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.

The survey found that 53% of likely U.S. voters trust Republicans more to handle crime and law enforcement issues, while 35% trust Democrats more. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure.

This marks a net increase of six points in the GOP margin since February, when Republicans led Democrats by 12 points, 48% to 36%, on the crime issue. 

By almost a 4-to-1 margin, more voters believe the problem of violent crime in America is getting worse (61%) than getting better (16%). Twenty percent (20%) see the crime problem as staying about the same.

Seventy-nine percent (79%) of voters say the issue of crime will be important in this year’s presidential election, including 45% who expect the crime issue to be “very important” in November.
