What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending January 30, 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%.
- Most voters say former President Trump should be acquitted in next month’s Senate impeachment trial, which they expect to make America’s political division worse.
- Despite the advent of vaccinations against COVID-19, a majority of Americans are very concerned about the financial impact of the pandemic.
- While advisers to Donald Trump have denied this week that the former president is planning to organize a third party, most Republican voters think a separate Trump party would be a good idea.
- Most voters think the country has become more divided since Election Day, and fewer than 1-in-5 say they are very confident President Biden will be able to unite Americans.
- On his first day in office, President Joe Biden signed an executive order to have the United States rejoin the Paris climate agreement, but most voters believe Biden’s decision will mean lost jobs and higher bills for Americans.
- Washington’s NFL franchise rushed to dump their “Redskins” mascot last year, but most Americans are against other pro teams changing their Native American sports mascots.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of January 17-21, 2021 fell to 91.6, down from 95.0 two weeks earlier.
- Twenty-four percent (24%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
