What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending July 25, 2020
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Trump ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 49%.
- Americans believe blacks are more racist than whites, Hispanics and Asians in this country.
- Most voters approve of President Trump’s decision to use federal agents to fight the growing violent crime in some major cities. They also believe many of these cities bring the criminal problems onto themselves.
- As the coronavirus lockdown loosens in many states, most parents of school-age children think schools should reopen this fall and say it will be bad for students if they do not.
- President Trump and likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden are now running neck-and-neck in Rasmussen Reports’ weekly White House Watch survey.
- Voters in both major parties are getting more enthusiastic about a Trump-Biden presidential matchup in November.
- Opposition is growing to efforts by the political left to defund the police, with most Americans convinced that such a move will lead to more violent crime.
- Voters seem to be comfortable with the immigration restrictions President Trump has put in place to counter the economic effects of the coronavirus.
- Voters still think most news reporters are biased and will continue to help Joe Biden a lot more than President Trump in their coverage of the presidential campaign.
- Twenty-four percent (24%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
