What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending April 16, 2022
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 41%.
- In the wake of Tuesday’s mass shooting on a Brooklyn subway train, most voters don’t think more control laws will prevent such incidents.
- Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is very popular with Republican voters, but if former President Donald Trump seeks the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, most expect Trump would beat DeSantis.
- Nothing Congress has done since last fall has improved their standing in the eyes of independent voters.
- The 2020 midterm elections are now 207 days away, and Republicans have an 8-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.
- As life returns to normal following the COVID-19 pandemic, slightly more Americans expect they’ll celebrate Easter Sunday in church.
- Half of Americans with full-time jobs say they worked from home at least part of the time during the COVID-19 pandemic, and more than a third expect they’ll do more work from home in the future.
- Thirty percent (30%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
