What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending June 13, 2020

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

- President Trump ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 43%. 

- As more of the country exits the lockdown and the stock market climbs to pre-pandemic levels, economic confidence is on the rebound, jumping 16 points from last month to 109.8 in June.

- Most voters have a high regard for the police and think they’re likely to be around for a long time to come.

- Leading the nation through the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic, the president earned a monthly job approval of 47% in May, up from 45% in April but still short of his high of 49% for the year to date in February.

- The popularity of the Black Lives Matter movement has climbed dramatically after several days of protest following the police killing of an unarmed black man in Minneapolis.

- Despite the high-profile anti-police protests nationwide, few Americans believe there are too many cops in this country, and most reject the push by the political left to defund police departments.

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of May 31-June 4, 2020 has climbed to 104.6, up from 101.4 the week before, as the economy roars back despite nationwide racial protest.

- Belief that blacks are treated unfairly by police and that police discrimination is a bigger issue than inner city crime have jumped to new highs.

- Twenty-seven percent (27%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
