What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending April 10, 2021
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 50%.
- As the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border continues, half of voters say President Joe Biden is doing a poor job of handling immigration issues.
- Distrust of political news reporting remains high, and more than half of voters believe the media are in the tank for President Biden.
- Major League Baseball pulled its All-Star Game from Atlanta to punish Georgia for enacting a new election integrity law, but most voters support the law and oppose calls for business boycotts against Georgia.
- As the murder trial of Derek Chauvin enters its second week, a near-majority of voters believe the former Minneapolis police officer should be found guilty in the death of George Floyd.
- After Georgia passed a new election law, Major League Baseball (MLB) decided to punish Georgia by moving the annual All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver. Most Americans think it’s a bad idea to mix sports and politics, but a majority of Democratic voters say MLB made the right decision.
- Economic confidence rose to 114.1 in this month’s Rasmussen Reports Economic Index, up more than four points from March, the second consecutive monthly increase.
- The Internal Revenue Service has extended the deadline for filing 2020 income taxes to May 17, but most Americans still plan to file by April 15 as usual. Fewer are worried about an IRS audit this year.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of March 28-April 1, 2021 rose to 84.9, up from 82.3 two weeks earlier.
