What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending April 29, 2023
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 50%.
- Voters remain concerned about high fuel prices and overwhelmingly support policies to increase U.S. oil and gas production.
- Accusations that President Joe Biden’s son got “preferential treatment” from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are a serious scandal, according to a majority of voters, but few expect the president to be impeached over it.
- A majority of voters are worried that their government is spying on Americans – almost as much as they fear spying from foreigners.
- Nearly a third of American voters would consider voting for a third-party candidate in next year’s presidential race, and Democrats are more open to the idea than either Republicans or independents.
- After being ousted from his prime-time show at Fox News Channel, commentator Tucker Carlson is more popular than the network that fired him – especially among conservatives and Republican voters.
- With college graduation season approaching, a majority of Americans think new grads will have trouble finding jobs.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of April 16-20, 2023, decreased to 91.2, down one point from 92.2 two weeks earlier.
- Thirty-seven percent (37%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
