What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending July 6, 2019

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

- President Trump ended the holiday polling week with a daily job approval of 49%. 

- Joe Biden may be finding the going a little rougher in his own party, but he’s still the most successful Democrat in a hypothetical 2020 matchup with President Trump.

- Most Americans still think highly of Independence Day AKA the Fourth of July and recognize what major historical event it celebrates.

- President Trump’s political opponents are cutting him no slack following his historic step across the border into North Korea this past weekend to further peace talks with dictator Kim Jong Un.

- The president earned a monthly job approval of 49% in June, up one point from 48% in May.

- The Trump administration wants to restore the citizenship question to the U.S. Census. Democratic leaders are strongly opposed, and the U.S. Supreme Court has put the issue on hold. But support for such a question remains strong among Americans.

- Former Vice President Joe Biden’s still the leader among the 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls following last week’s debates, although he’s lost notable ground among voters in his own party. Bernie Sanders, the clear number two in previous surveys, now runs even with Senators Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren.

- Forty-two percent (42%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
