What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending December 25, 2021
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 41%.
- Christmas remains the nation’s most important holiday, Americans say, and more plan to attend religious services to celebrate the holiday this year.
- Nearly half of Americans find the holiday season more stressful than joyful and report they’re having trouble getting into the holiday spirit this year.
- With less than a week left until Christmas, many Americans haven’t finished shopping for gifts and more than one-in-five haven’t even started yet.
- Most Americans are concerned about new variants of the COVID-19 virus, but Democrats are more concerned than others, and place more trust in vaccines to protect against the disease.
- An overwhelming majority of American voters believe Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s multimillion-dollar effort to influence the 2020 presidential election was a bad thing for democracy, and most still think cheating influenced the election outcome.
- While Democratic voters strongly support the House Select Committee’s investigation of the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, most Republicans and independents believe the committee has become a partisan weapon.
- Republican voters overwhelmingly say former President Trump represents their political views, but Democrats are less likely to say the same of President Joe Biden, and independent voters strongly prefer Trump to Biden.
- Thirty percent (30%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
