What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending June 27, 2020
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Trump ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 44%.
- Voters worry about their safety more these days and have more confidence in Joe Biden than President Trump to make things better. But once again party affiliation makes a big difference.
- Americans strongly reject the call by a leading Black Lives Matter activist to remove “white Jesus” from churches and elsewhere. His message resonates far stronger among black Americans than others.
- With the coronavirus lockdown easing in much of the country, most Americans plan to return to restaurants in the next month, although they admit they are worried about catching the virus while dining out.
- Americans are critical of police unions and think it’s too difficult to get rid of bad apples on the police force.
- Most Americans value the role of the police and worry that increasing criticism of cops will make their communities less safe. Black Americans are the most concerned.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of June 14-18, 2020 held steady at 105.5, little changed from 105.7 the week before. The week was marked by a major U.S. Supreme Court decision in favor of the so-called “Dreamers,” illegal immigrants brought to this country when they were young.
- Voters continue to see Democrats in Congress as more liberal than they are and congressional Republicans as more conservative.
- Twenty-five percent (25%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
