What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending February 29, 2020

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

- President Trump ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 47%. 

- The president earned a monthly job approval of 49% in February, up one point from January.

- Despite Bernie Sanders’ front-runner status in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, voters aren’t showing more enthusiasm for socialism. Democrats remain more receptive than other voters, however.

- President Trump would KO Democrat front-runner Bernie Sanders if the 2020 presidential election were held today.

- So much for bipartisanship. Most Republicans are finally happy with the job their representatives in Congress are doing, while Democrats are even happier with theirs than they have been in the past.

- With 78-year-old Bernie Sanders’ surge to the lead in the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, questions are being raised about his health, especially following a heart attack several months ago. A sizable majority of voters says a candidate’s health is an important voting issue, and most think major presidential candidates should make their medical records public.

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of February 16-20, 2020 has fallen to 99.7, down from 102.4 the week before and a high of 105.8 the week prior to that.

- Some Democrats were unhappy with President Trump’s recent pardoning of several convicted felons, but voters are closely divided over whether Congress should be able to stop those pardons.

- Forty-five percent (45%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction
