What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending March 27, 2021
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 48%.
- Many of his policies have stirred controversy, but when it comes to how Joe Biden has handled the coronavirus pandemic, most voters approve of the job the new president is doing.
- As a surge of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border confronts President Joe Biden with a crisis, more Americans than ever say controlling the border is a matter of national security.
- Much of President Biden’s agenda is unpopular, but most Americans support him in saying that mask-wearing to prevent the spread of coronavirus should be mandatory until everybody has been vaccinated.
- The White House has spent weeks denying that the surge of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border should be called a “crisis,” but two-thirds of voters say it is a crisis.
- In the wake of two mass shootings, President Joe Biden called for Congress to pass new gun-control laws, but nearly two-thirds of voters don’t believe such tragedies are preventable.
- Confidence in the nation’s economic future has declined in the past two years, and fewer Americans now expect their own income to increase.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of February 28-March 4, 2021 fell to 85.1, down from 86.0 two weeks earlier.
