What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending January 13, 2024
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 44%.
- Former President Donald Trump continues to lead President Joe Biden in the 2024 election, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis also has a narrow edge over the incumbent, but Biden would beat former U.N. Secretary Nikki Haley.
- Ten months ahead of the 2024 election, Republicans have a nine-point lead as they seek to maintain their narrow House majority.
- Voters are divided over efforts to remove former President Donald Trump from election ballots, but Democrats overwhelmingly approve such efforts.
- Although more voters still trust Democrats more than Republicans to deal with the issue of abortion, the Democratic advantage is no longer in double digits.
- Although concerns about movies causing violence in society have declined, Americans are slightly more likely to blame video games.
- Thirty percent (30%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
