In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 49%.
- At a time when many schools are embroiled in controversy over the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT), voters still think it is important that kids learn traditional values in school.
- In the wake of Kamala Harris’s visit to the U.S.-Mexico border, most voters have a negative view of how the vice president is dealing with the immigration crisis.
- Fox News host Tucker Carlson made headlines last week when he accused the federal government of spying on him, but most voters think such surveillance is likely.
- Voters overwhelmingly believe “fake news” is a problem, and a majority agree with former President Donald Trump that the media have become “the enemy of the people.”
- Economic confidence fell to 108.9 in this month’s Rasmussen Reports Economic Index, down nearly 10 points from June, the second consecutive monthly decline.
- Americans overwhelmingly believe it is important for young people to participate in sports, but most feel that rewarding winners matters more than recognizing kids for participating.
- Voters don’t seem very interested in whether Congress passes President Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill, and most believe Republicans will be able take back control of Congress in next year’s midterm elections.
- Thirty-nine percent (39%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
