What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending December 2, 2023
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 44%.
- By nearly a 2-to-1 margin, voters in Arkansas support calls for switching their state’s elections to paper ballots.
- President Joe Biden is too old for the job, according to a majority of voters, who don’t think he should seek reelection next year.
- A majority of voters support congressional efforts to impeach Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
- Many voters don’t want Vice President Kamala Harris as President Joe Biden’s 2024 running mate, but most Democrats do. Among Republican voters, meanwhile, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis leads among potential VP picks, if former President Donald Trump is next year’s GOP nominee.
- Most voters don’t believe Congress is doing a good job and, by a 2-to-1 margin, say members of Congress care more about the media than about what voters think.
- The president earned a monthly job approval of 44% in November, down one point from October.
- Nearly half of regular users of the social platform formerly known as Twitter say the site has gotten better since Elon Musk purchased it last year, but they’re less enthusiastic about his rebranding it as “X.”
- Thirty-three percent (33%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
