What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending January 14, 2203
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 47%.
- Voters overwhelmingly believe there is a crisis at America’s southern border, and blame President Joe Biden for mishandling the immigration problem.
- The beginning of Congress was delayed last week by the historic 15-ballot fight to elect Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House. Voters are divided over whether McCarthy or his opponents are more to blame for that delay.
- When it comes to what the future holds for President Joe Biden, voters are largely divided along party lines.
- Half of voters disapprove of the $1.7 trillion spending bill rammed through Congress last month, and a majority agree that it’s a “disaster” for America.
- With the new session of Congress under way, voters are somewhat optimistic that things will get better, and a majority are convinced that President Joe Biden should let Congress lead.
- Economic confidence decreased to 93.6 in this month’s Rasmussen Reports Economic Index, more than three points lower than December.
- While many Americans think the National Football League needs to do more to protect players, a majority approve the league’s handling of a recent high-profile injury.
- Thirty-four percent (34%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
