What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending April 22, 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%.
- A majority of voters suspect recent elections have been affected by cheating, and believe officials are ignoring the problem.
- Following Tucker Carlson’s release of previously unseen videos from the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol, more voters now believe it may have been provoked by undercover agents.
- In the aftermath of an uproar over Anheuser-Busch’s use of transgender model Dylan Mulvaney to promote Bud Light beer, a majority of Americans favor boycotting the brand.
- Concerns about the U.S. economy remain high, but voters now rate President Joe Biden slightly better on the issue than they did last fall.
- Politics is behind the media’s publication of leaked classified information, most voters believe, but the recent leaks about the Ukraine war haven’t changed support for U.S. aid.
- Sites like Facebook and Twitter aren’t safe for minors, according to a majority of Americans, who have become more comfortable with social media platforms censoring offensive material.
- The promotion of electric cars as a solution to climate change appears to be making Americans more willing to think about buying such vehicles.
- Thirty-five percent (35%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
