What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls Week Ending February 25, 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%. 

- After announcing her 2024 presidential campaign, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley leads President Joe Biden in a hypothetical matchup, but badly trails former President Donald Trump among GOP voters 

- In communities affected by recent illegal immigration, voters believe the impact on schools, health care and employment has been mainly negative. 

- Most voters are willing to commit U.S. naval and air power to defending Taiwan against a Chinese invasion, but draw the line at sending ground troops to fight in such a conflict. 

- As the nation celebrates Presidents' Day, a plurality of Americans consider former President Donald Trump both the best and worst of recent leaders

- On the one-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion, nearly half of American voters see the war in Ukraine as a stalemate.

- Seven weeks before the Internal Revenue Service deadline, nearly a third of Americans have already filed their income taxes

- Despite years of progressive activism, a majority of Americans still don’t buy into the “woke” narrative that white people have a monopoly on racism.

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