What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending December 26, 2020

In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:

- President Trump ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 45%.

- Most Americans still consider Christmas one of our most important holidays, but with the COVID-19 lockdown, fewer say they plan to go to church this holiday season.

- The clock’s ticking, and a sizable number of Americans still have holiday shopping to do.

- Most voters still see climate change as a natural disaster in the making, and those who blame humans for it remain strongly supportive of a government crackdown.

- Americans are cautious about the new anti-coronavirus vaccine and slightly more reluctant to get one. Most also aren’t convinced that the vaccine will be administered fairly.

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of December 13-17, 2020 fell slightly to 99.0 from 99.2 the week before. The Index has now closed below its baseline in five out of the seven weekly surveys since Election Day, suggesting voters are looking for tighter immigration control from the incoming Biden administration.

- Many U.S. voters suspect China interfered in our recent elections and believe Chinese influence here will grow with Joe Biden in the White House.

- Thirty-one percent (31%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
