What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending February 10, 2024

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

- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 41%.

There is a “major crisis” in the Middle East, according to a majority of voters who agree with a former Trump administration official who blames President Joe Biden’s policy for the problem.

- American voters now have a less favorable view of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu than they did a few months ago, but agree with him that it is “outrageous” to accuse Israel of genocide against Palestinians.

- As the House of Representatives prepares to vote on impeaching Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, a narrow majority of voters favor the impeachment.

-A majority of voters think President Joe Biden is losing mental sharpness, and most suspect the media are trying to cover up the president’s cognitive decline.

- The Kansas City Chiefs – and their celebrity fan Taylor Swift – are favorites to win Sunday’s Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers.

- Economic confidence increased to 110.0 in this month’s Rasmussen Reports Economic Index, eight points higher than January

- By a 3-to-1 margin, more Americans say the problem of opioid drug abuse has gotten worse in the past year than think it's gotten better.

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