What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending April 23, 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%.
- Fears of Russian interference in U.S. politics remain widespread, and Democratic voters overwhelmingly agree with Hillary Clinton that Russia is to blame for her defeat in 2016.
- Voters overwhelmingly believe women in the military should be eligible for combat duty, but say they must meet the same training standards as male soldiers.
- The $43 billion offer by Elon Musk to buy the Twitter social media platform has Americans divided – and Democrats are most opposed to Musk’s bid for Twitter.
- At a time when Russia’s invasion of Ukraine highlights national security issues, most voters believe America’s national security is getting worse and few give President Joe Biden high marks for his handling of the issue.
- Most Americans approve of a judge’s decision striking down mandatory masks on trains and airlines, and believe the danger from the COVID-19 pandemic is mostly over.
- While most Americans remain confident about their ability to find a job and get ahead in the current economy, workers are less likely to expect a raise.
- President Joe Biden’s approval rating may be scraping the bottom, but one element of his agenda is popular with voters – canceling student loan debt.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index decreased to 87.9, down more than three points from 91.4 two weeks earlier.
- Thirty percent (30%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
