What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending September 18, 2021
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 43%.
- Fewer than one in four Americans say they plan to attend a football game this fall, and a majority are worried that crowded stadiums could lead to COVID-19 outbreaks.
- Most voters support President Joe Biden’s recent order to make employers with more than 100 employees require vaccination against COVID-19.
- Nearly half of voters agree with claims by organizers of a rally planned for Saturday in D.C. that those charged with participating in the January 6 Capitol riot are “political prisoners.”
- Hollywood stars have gone all-out to help prevent the recall of California Gov. Gavin Newsom, and President Joe Biden is traveling to the West Coast before Tuesday’s vote, but do such endorsements make a difference? Not according to most voters.
- The revelation this week by Secretary of State Anthony Blinken that thousands of U.S. green card holders have been left behind in Afghanistan has voters worried that these Americans will become Taliban hostages, and most agree it is a “national humiliation.”
- Most Americans see Hollywood as dominated by liberal politics, and barely one in four view the entertainment business as a positive influence.
- The Taliban takeover of Afghanistan and the lack of U.S. border enforcement increase the risk of terrorist attacks against American, according to solid majority voters.
- Thirty-four percent (34%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
