What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending August 5, 2023

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

-  President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 46%. 

-  A majority of U.S. voters view Israel as an ally, and don’t think President Joe Biden has made the alliance stronger. 

- Since the departure of popular host Tucker Carlson in April, Fox News is now rated the most trusted cable news network by only a third of conservative voters.

- The president earned a monthly job approval of 45% in July, up one point from June. 

- With Hunter Biden’s former business partner Devon Archer reportedly set to spill the beans on Joe Biden’s involvement in their foreign business deals, most voters think the president has tried to cover up the scandal.

- Despite testimony about President Joe Biden’s role in his son Hunter’s foreign business deals, voters are now less likely to support impeachment proceedings than they were three months ago. 

- A larger majority of Americans now think summer camp is an important experience for children.

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of July 24-31, 2023, decreased to 90.4, down three points from 93.4 two weeks earlier. 

Thirty-five percent (35%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
