What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending April 24, 2021
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 52%.
- Coca-Cola was one of the companies that publicly condemned Georgia’s new election integrity law, and the Atlanta-based soft drink bottler may pay a price for getting involved in that controversy.
- Democrats in Congress last week proposed legislation to increase the number of Supreme Court justices from nine to 13, but most voters oppose the so-called “court-packing” plan.
- President Joe Biden announced last week his plan to end America’s longest war by withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan, and nearly half of voters approve his decision.
- In the wake of a former Minneapolis police officer’s murder conviction in the death of George Floyd, Americans overwhelming agree with the guilty verdict, but a majority believe politics influenced the outcome.
- A majority of Americans say they’ve done their share to clean up the planet, but most don’t credit Earth Day – celebrated annually on April 22 – for raising awareness of environmental issues.
- In the wake of the George Floyd murder trial, most Americans still support police and worry that criticism of cops will make their communities less safe.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of April 11-15, 2021 fell to 83.7, down from 84.9 two weeks earlier. The index is now just slightly above last month’s record low of 82.3.
