What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending April 15, 2023

In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:

-  President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 48%. 

Religious faith is important to most Americans, but they worry that traditional beliefs are getting watered down. 

- Less than half of voters want President Joe Biden to seek a second term next year, and two-thirds think Biden should face challengers in the Democratic primary. 

- In the aftermath of last week’s shooting at a Christian school in Nashville, a plurality of voters see mental health as the primary cause of such incidents. 

- The unprecedented felony prosecution of former President Donald Trump in New York City is bad for America, according to a majority of voters who agree that the case is “banana republic sort of stuff.”  


- Most American homeowners remain confident in the resale value of their homes. 

- With the annual income tax deadline just days away, more Americans this year appear to plan last-minute filings. 

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of April 2-6, 2023, increased to 92.2, up nearly six points from 86.4 two weeks earlier.

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