What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending November 14, 2020
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Trump ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 52%.
- In the days prior to the 2020 presidential election, economic confidence jumped to 126.4 in the Rasmussen Reports Economic Index, up nine points from October but still shy of the highest finding since March when states started locking down due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
- A week after the presidential election, voters continue to see a more divided America after four years of the Trump presidency. While half of voters place the blame at Trump’s feet, nearly as many don’t see it getting any better if Biden takes his seat in the White House.
- Voting patterns in this year’s presidential election are virtually the same as those in 2016, with most voters making their decision weeks before Election Day. But over a quarter of voters worry their vote won’t be correctly counted.
- Looking back at the presidential election, Trump voters overwhelmingly say they voted for the president, while a sizable number of Biden supporters admit they were voting against Trump rather than for the former vice president.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of November 1-5, 2020 has fallen to 98.5 from 101.8 the week before, suggesting that prospective President Biden may be at odds with voters if he pursues many of his proposed immigration policies.
