What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending September 25, 2021
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 42%.
- Voters are divided on whether former President Donald Trump should run again in 2024, but most would vote for him in a race against either President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris.
- A majority of voters blame President Joe Biden for the migrant crisis at the Mexico border, and rate him “poor” on his handling of immigration. Most voters also give the media poor ratings for their coverage of America’s immigration problems.
- Most Americans don’t approve of a new State Department policy allowing people to change the gender identity on their passport without documentation.
- Fewer than one-third of Americans now expect a stronger economy a year from now, and nearly half think it will be worse.
- A majority of voters object to the cost of President Joe Biden’s plan to resettle tens of thousands of refugees from Afghanistan in the United States.
- Problems like COVID-19, immigration and climate change may dominate headlines, but most Americans have a positive view of their own lives.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of September 12-16, 2021, decreased to 89.6, down from 90.0 two weeks earlier.
- Thirty-four percent (32%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
