What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending February 6, 2021
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 49%.
- Two weeks after President Joe Biden was sworn into office, most voters say reporters are not questioning the new president as aggressively as they questioned former President Donald Trump.
- Congress and President Biden are wrangling over legislation that would send Americans another round of stimulus checks, and a majority of voters say a new round of stimulus checks is necessary to help the country recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
- With small-trader enthusiasm for GameStop roiling the stock market, most voters say Wall Street insiders manipulate the market, and don’t have much confidence that President Biden will crack down on insiders.
- President Biden promised to unify the country, but voters say Americans are becoming more intolerant of political disagreement.
- Tom Brady will play in his 10th Super Bowl this Sunday, but most Americans don’t expect the Tampa Bay quarterback to lead the Buccaneers to victory.
- Most Americans believe the coronavirus vaccine will eventually contain the pandemic, but still expect to be required to wear masks in public for at least the next six months.
- Support for an “America First" foreign policy has grown stronger, but most voters don’t think President Biden shares their view.
- Thirty-five percent (35%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
