What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending July 17, 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%.
- Democratic lawmakers in Texas fled the state this week to prevent the GOP-controlled legislature from passing an election integrity bill, and most Democrats support the fugitive legislators.
- Voters are divided over the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but most agree with President Joe Biden’s explanation for the decision.
- President Joe Biden said last week it is time to go “door-to-door” to vaccinate people against COVID-19, but most voters disagree.
- When children return to school this fall, will they be required to wear masks and get the COVID-19 vaccine? Democrats hope so.
- Maybe it was the hacking of Hillary Clinton’s emails, or maybe it was the endless investigations of Donald Trump, but clearly something has happened to shift public opinion against the publication of leaked emails.
- Most Americans expect to watch much of the upcoming Tokyo Olympics competition, but the prospect of political protests by athletes make many less likely to tune in.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of July 6-8, 2021, declined to 89.3, down from 89.5 two weeks earlier.
- Thirty-nine percent (39%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
