What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending December 24, 2022

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

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

-  Americans may be looking forward to a visit from the jolly fellow in the red suit, but most say Christmas is still about the baby born in Bethlehem. 

-  Independent Voters Take Worse View of Congress

-  With the clock ticking down to Christmas, more than half of Americans still have last-minute gift shopping to do. 

-  Voters are divided over a congressional committee’s investigation of the January 2021 Capitol riot, with Democrats overwhelmingly in favor of prosecuting former President Donald Trump for the riot by his supporters.  

- Optimism about America’s future has declined sharply in the past two years, and nearly half of voters think President Joe Biden has made it worse.

- By more than a 2-to-1 margin, voters approve Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s decision to leave the Democratic Party, and overwhelmingly agree with her that the political system is “broken.” 

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of December 11-15, 2022, increased to 94.3, up three points from 91.3 two weeks earlier.

- Thirty-three percent (33%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction
