What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 51%.
- Republicans have followed the news about Critical Race Theory (CRT) more closely than other voters, and two-thirds of GOP voters think teaching it in schools will lead to worse race relations.
- While sizeable numbers of both Democratic and Republican voters are discontented with their party’s leadership, Democrats are significantly more satisfied with their current leaders.
- As America’s cities experience a surge of criminal violence, less than a quarter of voters trust the media to report the facts about crime.
- Less than a third of voters agree with President Joe Biden’s recent claim that global warming is America’s “the greatest threat,” and few are willing to pay more taxes to fight such a threat.
- With Father’s Day approaching, Americans overwhelming still believe it’s important for children to grow up in two-parent homes, and think fatherhood is the most important role for men.
- Nearly half of Americans watch videos on TikTok, but a majority worry that the popular app is a risk to user privacy.
- President Joe Biden just completed a weeklong trip to Europe that included the G7 summit and a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but less than half of voters think his European trip was successful.
- Some Republicans in Congress want to censure Rep. Ilhan Omar for comments comparing the United States to terrorist groups, and most voters reject the Minnesota Democrat’s rhetoric.

- Thirty-eight percent (38%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
